Shared Decision Making
Dr. Victor Montori joined us on Medical Edge Radio to discuss a different way to approach the topic of health care; Shared Decision Making. Are patients participating in medical decisions affecting their care? What does it take to participate in those decisions? Is this the end of "whatever you say, doc?"
During the program, Dr. Montori reminded us there are three key points to remember when you incorporate Shared Decision Making into a conversation with your healthcare team:
- What are the options for my health situation?
- What are the pros and cons for those options?
- How likely are you to experience those different possible outcomes?
