A reinterpretation of past models.

In past models patient values and patient autonomy have often been tightly linked. These models assume that as values formation increases, autonomy must as well when in fact these variables may not always co-vary. As described in the text, many patients fall away from this diagonal line. Examples of this include A, the patient with high levels of autonomy and relatively unformed health care-related values, e.g. a financial analyst, and B, the patient from a very traditional culture where health care-related values are clear but personal autonomy is low.
