Abstract

We solve problems every day. The problems can range from the simple act of changing a lightbulb to the more challenging dilemmas of foreign affairs and biomedical science. Every time you meet a patient, you will use your skills as a professional problem solver. But before you can begin to take care of a patient’s illness, you must recognize the problem. Define the problem, and then develop steps to solve it.
