Week one of Shared Decision Making (SDM) Month did not disappoint with great insight from providers, health systems, patients and others on the benefits and barriers to implementing shared decision making. We heard about innovative ways shared decision making is being implemented in the U.S. during Wednesday’s Shared Decision Making in the Real World webinar and got an international perspective during Tuesday’s exciting first #SDMchat.
The theme of the second week (March 11-15) is “Shared Decision Making Along the Continuum of Care.” Throughout the week, we will hear from SDM Month contributors about how shared decision making practices and tools are being applied to a variety of different health care decisions. This week we are also excited to be hosting our FREE in-person panel in Boston on Wednesday, March 13. If you are in Boston, we hope you will join us for what is sure to be an interesting and eye-opening panel discussion.
