In conventional health care it's difficult to get beyond "illness," because the focus is on a "problem-oriented approach." This model works great in the acute care setting, but for chronic health problems it is limiting. Appreciative Medicine challenges each of us to change our focus from problems, and illness, to health and well-being.
