Jeff Kane, MD, has limited his practice since the late 1970s to cancer support group facilitation. That is, he only listens to patients and their families. He founded the support programs at Sutter Cancer Center in Sacramento, Calif., and Sierra Nevada Cancer Center in Grass Valley, Calif., and teaches medical practitioners “bedside manner” in workshops nationally. His most recent book is How to Heal: A Guide for Caregivers (Helios Press, 2003). He's now writing his next, Healthcare As Though People Matter, based on his blog, Healthcare As Though People Matter.
