Committing to treatment
In this scenario, a healthcare provider speaks with a patient about committing to his hemophilia treatment regimen. The healthcare provider is concerned about the risks to the patient, who hasn’t been following his treatment plan. We’ll explore this scenario using the “directive” and “constructive” approaches to see which approach leads the patient to reflect and reconsider his responsibility for treatment. Each approach is followed by commentary to provide background on why one approach may have been more effective than the other.
