Physician as Coach: Patient as Player

I really like this analogy.  Dr. Field talks about it in his blog.

It is easy for me to understand the role of my physician as providing me with the details about my disease.  They can tell me what to do.  They can motivate me to do it.  BUT, ultimately, it depends upon me as the patient to actually deal with the condition and improve it.
