Five Ways that Writing a Book Improved my Care of CRPC Patients - Charles Ryan

March 06, 2018

My first book, The Virility Paradox,  came out in February. I have written about it before and an interview with me ( by UCSD Urologist Kelly Parsons) has been posted elsewhere on UroToday. It has been a four year project and, perhaps a bit melodramatically, I’ll use an overused word and call it a four year ‘journey’. Here I want to focus on how that process changed me as a physician and affected my care of patients. Hopefully, there’s a lesson here for other clinicians and patients.
