The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) and the Institute for Clinical Systems Improvement (ICSI) are sponsoring a FREE one-day train-the-trainer workshop on shared decision-making on Tuesday, April 28, 2015 at ICSI’s offices in Bloomington, Minnesota.
Using the SHARE Approach, a five-step process for shared decision-making, this free workshop provides health care professionals with patient decision aids, conversation starters, tips to communicate with patients, an implementation guide for clinical teams, and other tools that support shared decision-making in clinical practice settings.
Richard Wexler, MD, chief integration officer for Healthwise, demonstrates why shared decision-making is an important component of high-quality care. Joyce Kramer, RN, Manager of Shared Decision-Making at Allina Health, and MSDMC participant, describes the lessons her health system learned from working with management and clinicians to implement SDM using decision aids.
A Newsworks story uses one patient’s experience with a cancer diagnosis to show what experts are learning: That individual patients have different comfort levels when it comes to weighing all the variables and detail of a complicated medical choice.
