Questions about the Past and/or Future to help people:

  • Imagine a time when they were more engaged in their health
  • Imagine the positive outcomes of engaging in their health

Here are some examples of how you might engage patients in thinking about their past or future:

  • What were the benefits of using the power wheelchair in the past?
  • What helped you be successful with the cathing program when you were first injured?
  • What would your life look like a year from today if you were independent with your pressure relief?
