Abstract

Influences of chronic homelessness on patients' conceptions of bodily integrity can conflict with clinicians' recommendations about clinically indicated interventions, such as dialysis or amputations. This article considers such conflict by drawing on a capabilities-based model to reframe health care as shared between a patient and clinical team.
