Shared decision making (SDM) provides a patient-centered approach to care. Health care providers work together with the patient to make health care decisions, focusing on what is best for the patient. This approach has been shown to improve patient communication and satisfaction while also reducing health inequalities among underserved populations. This two-part workshop series will discuss both the patient and the caregiver role in the shared decision-making process.
Part I: Shared Decision-Making, the Patient Perspective
Tuesday, November 15, 2022
1 - 2:30 p.m.
Part one of this workshop will focus on the patient perspective of shared decision-making. Participants will learn about the shared decision-making health care model and how this patient-centered approach not only improves the patient-provider relationship but also focuses on the needs, values and preferences of the person with cancer. There will be time at the end dedicated to discussion and Q&A.
Part II: Shared Decision-Making, the Caregiver Perspective
Thursday, November 17, 2022
1 - 2:30 p.m.
Part two of this workshop will focus on the caregiver perspective of shared decision-making. Participants will learn about the shared decision-making health care model and how caregivers have a unique experience in supporting their loved ones. Although each experience is unique, many caregivers face similar challenges during the decision-making process. There will be time at the end dedicated to discussion and Q&A.
