FRAME Prompts – think about a patient with this condition:

  1. What Health System challenges do you think this patient and her or his family may face?
  2. How would you envision the optimal system of care for this patient? As you consider this question, think about such things as interprofessional teams, insurance, access to care, bioinformatics (health records and data), and quality outcomes.
  3. Discuss how the Health Humanities might factor into the experience of this patient and her/his family. Consider such things as the doctor/care team-patient relationship, perceptions of dis-ability, ethical issues, and bias.
  4. What is your understanding of the underlying basic science of this condition?
  5. What is your understanding of potential treatments for this patient?
