Sacred Space: Stories from a Life in Medicine
For Dr. Clif Cleaveland, the patient is always the center of a sacred space. This space may include a team of health care providers, family, and friends. It may be in an intensive care unit, a hospice or a nursing home, an emergency room, or a patient's home. But no matter the location or circumstances, the sacred space is always a circle of caring. From boyhood in a small Southern town, through education at Oxford and service on an Army base, to his current practice in Chattanooga, Tennessee, Clif Cleaveland has spent a lifetime learning about the sacred space. Through the stories in this book, we also learn. We witness almost unbelievable strength and incomprehensible callousness. We share the joys and the sorrows of the patients who have been a part of Clif Cleaveland's life and who are now a part of ours.
