Amazing Doctors & Nurses

“I attribute my success to this – I never gave or took any excuse” – Florence Nightingale.

We have all relied on doctors and nurses at various points during our lives. However, the remarkable stories behind so many important and influential achievements remain unknown. This inspirational eBook explores how doctors and nurses have developed their remarkable skills and methods to help patients, supported by researchers in many fields.

“My Health, My Right” – World Health Day 2024

World Health Day on 7th April 2024 marks an annual celebration that draws attention to health concerns of people all over the world. This year, it also celebrates the anniversary of the founding of the World Health Organization, in 1948. The topic this year is ‘My Health, My Right’, and focusses on having health recognised as a human right. This is something which many of us take for granted, but the fact is that at least 4.5 billion people – which represents more than half of the world’s population – are not fully covered by essential health services (WHO 2021).

Paving The Way For Modern Medicine

The heroes and heroines in this book include people who paved the way for modern medicine and saved countless lives by advancing the boundaries of treatment. Their great stories come back to life through a story format called a BioView. It is as if these amazing doctors and nurses returned through time to tell the story of their life and their amazing achievements.

A BioView is a short biographical story, similar to an interview, about an amazing person. It provides an easy way of learning about people who made major contributions to our world. The unique format and flow enable each person’s story to come alive, as if it is being personally told to you and reflects their interests, emotions and passions.

Health Conditions Of The Time

Thousands of babies are born each day. If they are fortunate to live in countries with a high standard of living, then normally a doctor or nurse or both will be there to assist the mother. For those who are not so fortunate, then nature is usually left to take its course, sometimes for the best but often for the worse.

That was the situation for most mothers until about 100 years ago. Medical facilities were poor or non-existent, as indeed they are in many parts of the world today – which is why ‘My Health, My Right’ is the topic for this year’s World Health Day. This book records, in a unique way, how doctors and nurses have changed our lives. The revolution in health care started after 1850 when people like Semmelweis tried to persuade other doctors to wash their hands in carbolic. At that time, many mothers were dying in childbirth.

Shining A Light On The Nursing Profession – The ‘Lady With The Lamp’

About the same time, Florence Nightingale took 38 nurses to the Crimea to try and help wounded soldiers. They were often ignored or harassed by army surgeons and military people. Indeed, the profession of nursing at that time was regarded as a low-level occupation. On her return to England, Florence Nightingale set about changing that and improving the life of many by developing nurses for the new profession. The ‘Lady With The Lamp’ literally shone a light on nursing as a career.

It was some years before Pasteur explained how germs spread and caused infection. It required considerable efforts by Lister and others to improve hygiene in hospitals and surgeries. The medical profession was backward in learning and reluctant to change old practices. Despite opposition in many quarters, standards began to improve. Each one depended on time being spent on research and development.

Many of these amazing people reacted to events and decisions. In many cases, they observed fear and developed plans to give themselves and others hope. As we celebrate World Health Day and ‘My Health, My Right’, let’s pay homage to those who have given so much of themselves to help us all live healthy lives. Health professionals both past and present are truly deserving of being referred to as ‘Amazing’! Explore some of their stories in this inspirational title – Amazing Doctors And Nurses.
