Dr. Tom Hutchinson from McGill's Programs in Whole Person Care has published Whole-person care: Transforming Healthcare which makes the case that the Whole Person – the self in all its physiological, emotional, social and even spiritual dimensions – should receive truly comprehensive patient-centered care. The text includes a chapter devoted to Mindful Medical Practice. A review of Dr. Hutchinson's book can be found here.
