Michael Klein: When Doctors Are Wrong
Dr. Michael Klein, Professor Emeritus of family practice at the University of British Columbia, and recipient of the Order of Canada, presents his memoir: Dissident Doctor, My Life Catching Babies and Challenging the Medical Status Quo.
Klein;s early experiences working with midwives in Ethiopia led him to question the many standard but unjustified procedures in Western maternity care. He then spent his life challenging conventional medical wisdom and fighting for the acceptance of midwifery as a humane medical practice in Canada.
