The Soft Edges - Impossible Partners
AbstractWe live and work our lives with supportive and congenial colleagues. One of the great pleasures of medicine is the fellowship of people who are like-minded and genuine in their desire to do good work. They give pride to our shared attitudes and beliefs. Nevertheless a small minority of doctors will - like the ordinary population - be impossible. This can occur in three dimensions. It may be a personality clash between two people, a clash between one person and everyone else, or a mess involving factions of varying partialities.
