    Having been in practice for thirty years, I have become very fond of and close to many of my patients. Then they die. Often as many as five in a year (nothing to do with my treatment!)
    I often find out from another patient whilst treating them. I have no time to process the loss, let alone grieve.
    I think this should be addressed in training, and mentoring may be helpful.

    We must also not underestimate what we as experienced podiatrists can also learn from having students in the clinic with us.
    Some of the questions they ask can help us to look at conditions we treat everyday in a different way. I see mentoring as a 2 way information street.
