Eight Simple Questions by Arthur Kleinman

The Kleinman questions, developed out of medical anthropology research, are designed to elicit health beliefs and expectations, or concerns, about the illness and treatment. You should be familiar with these questions before conducting the interview. Using the eight simple questions provided by Arthur Kleinman, you should be able to individualize care and understand the person you are caring for. You will interview the person concerning the health problem that he or she considers the most significant. Arthur Kleinman’s eight questions for eliciting the person’s explanatory model (EM) of his or her illness are as follows:

1. What do you call the problem? 

2. What do you think has caused the problem? 

3. Why do you think it started when it did? 

4. What do you think the sickness does? How does it work? 

5. How severe is the sickness? Will it have a short or long course? 

6. What kind of treatment do you think you should receive? What are the most important results you hope to receive from this treatment? 

7. What are the chief problems the sickness has caused? 

8. What do you fear most about the sickness? 

The paper must include the following items, as well as general elements of a well-written paper (clear, specific introduction and conclusion, good transitions between paragraphs and new ideas/points, proper APA format, etc.):
