Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Barfield "Much of what I do at Duke is to develop new approaches to helping kids. On the medical side of campus I practice as a pediatric oncologist and I direct the Pediatric Quality of Life/Palliative Care program. In the Divinity School I develop courses and programs to better understand the experience of illness and suffering. The children I have cared for have taught me more than anyone about how to grow as a doctor. I am married and have two kids. Outside the hospital my two favorite activities are writing and playing my guitar. I have published three books: The Ancient Quarrel Between Poetry and PhilosophyPascal's Wager: What Is It to Be Human? and Life in the Blind Spot a book of poetry."
