Your analysis of the movie, Wit, should include a descriptive analysis of one issue related to the
healthcare team that you identified in the movie as important to the care of the patient. There
are a few issues, so this is not a matter of identifying the only correct issue. Your analysis and
reflection should show that you have seen the movie; your writing should not be superficial (express your opinions, avoid vague generalizations, be specific with examples).
Consider the following questions that may help you with your analysis or reflection.
(1) How does this film portray the relationships between the patient and her health care
providers?
(2) How does the film portray the health care providers?
(3) What role does nursing play in the patient’s care.
(4) Consider the nurse’s advocacy role, and her teaching role. Is there any place that she could
have done a better job in taking care of the patient. Any room for improvement in her delivery to
care to this patient? (Do not criticize the technical care, remember artistic license.)
(5) What is important to this patient? What was troubling to this patient regarding her care?
What is important in nursing education on any level in order for our nursing force to deliver
patient centered care?
(6) How do we deliver patient centered care? How could we change our practice to address
these deficiencies in health care? Is it reasonable to expect that we could address the patient
as a person, and still have time to take care of our patients? How do nurses get to know
patients?
9). Would any of the practice short comings in “WIT” happen today in our local hospitals?
