Abstract: Individual values sometimes lead patients to make lifestyle choices that have negative effects on their health. Doctors tend to feel responsible for delivering best-practice health outcomes to such patients, but also feel inclined to respect their patients' values. The adoption of a harm reduction model may provide a strategy for delivering the best care that is compatible with each patient's chosen lifestyle.
