Examples from Patients

  • Would you make this same recommendation for someone you love?
  • Why do I need this?
  • What could go wrong?

Examples from Healthcare Providers

  • What matters to you?
  • Have you asked me everything that you wanted to today?
  • Do you have any questions or concerns that I have not addressed?
