Care Pathways Case – Navigating Patients Through the Healthcare Maze Following presentations, physicians engaged in a case study dialogue. They discussed 3 patients interconnected by family relationships. In breakout groups, they considered and reported back responses to the following questions: • What options are available to you presently for patient management? • What are the barriers? • What system changes might help you with patient management?
