Next, consider a patient who has a severe but undiagnosed disease, illness, or injury. Based on your knowledge of this disease, illness, or injury, ask yourself the following questions:
What steps might the patient have to go through to determine a diagnosis?
What types of health care settings and services might they be exposed to during this process?
What barriers or challenges might they encounter when attempting to access and pay for health services in these settings?
How might the patient’s experience differ in health settings with high quality service vs. low quality service?
