“Medicine is the most humane of the sciences, the most empiric of arts, and the most scientific of humanities. (…)
Humanistic medicine exists when the science, technology, and craftsmanship of the physician are practiced with the deepest respect for the humanity of the patient. This means that everything is modulated by those values we call human: freedom to make informed decisions, preservation of dignity, absence of humiliation, and the responsible use of power. If medicine is indeed the science particularized in a unique way in the clinical situation, then it must, by definition, be humanistic. Otherwise, it is not medicine at all, but some conglomerate of techniques, craftsmanship, [or] science”.
