Here is a difficult question: “Can a healthcare provider help a patient develop virtue?” Without doubt, it is hard, but it is possible. Virtue is more than the development of habits, but virtue’s presence or absence will result in habits being formed. The healthcare provider can help a patient develop positive habits with accountability and reinforcement of positive conduct. The healthcare provider can promote virtue in the life of the patient by celebrating success, however small, and by cheering the patient on to success.
