Professor ‘prods’ doctors to rethink irritable bowel diagnosis.
Prolific public health advocate and author Professor Kerryn Phelps AM has a strong message for her conservative medical colleagues – listen to your patients’ ‘gut instincts’!
The one-time federal president of the Australian Medical Association and current Deputy Lord Mayor of Sydney, Prof. Phelps is not one to shy away from controversy over her passion for patient well-being.
Apart from the highly public spat she had with former Health Minister Michael Wooldridge in early 2001, there have been her strident calls for doctors to consider patients’ sexuality and gender issues when treating them.
The Mystery Gut, published by Pan Macmillan Australia, is available in book stores. RRP $34.99
