shared decision making workshop

Shared Decision Making

Thursday, September 15, 2016 at 1 PM in Paul Brest Hall, Stanford University.

You make decisions every day. Some are good; some are not as good. Did you know there is a science to decision making that can help people make better decisions more often? In collaboration with Eli Lilly, Medicine X will facilitate a half-day design workshop about improving decision making for patients and providers.

program highlights

  • Solve the problems that matter most to you – Bring your problems to the conversation, and leave with applicable solutions to the problems that matter the most to you.
  • Discover a new framework  –  Find out how to make the best treatment decisions using a practical framework based on over 20 years of research
  • Experience shared decision making – Practice with patients and providers, and share your thoughts on how to take this method into everyday situations
  • Learn from internationally-renowned experts – Get advice from experts in decision making and cognitive psychology
  • Introductions and ice breakers for facilitators and participants
  • Discussions on making medical decisions and why they can be difficult
  • Introductions to shared decision making (SDM) and practical framework
  • Values clarification – techniques on clarifying what matters most to you and hands-on activities on applying SDM to your decision making
  • Brainstorming and feedback – how can this become the norm?
  • Patients
  • Health care providers
  • Clinicians
  • Caregivers
  • Patient advocates
  • Educators
  • Researchers

It takes two to tango: how shared decision making can help patients and providers make better decisions together

Come learn a practical framework for improving your decision making, and be prepared to try it out on actual decisions you and other participants face. For this workshop we will zero-in on techniques for gaining clarity about our values and preferences—the things we care most about. Only after being clear about these, and integrating them with science and medicine, can the truly “best” treatment choice for an individual patient be selected. Additionally, after learning and practicing these methods, you will have an opportunity to brainstorm and share your thoughts on how to take this methodology from the realm of research to everyday practice. Come learn, experience, and share!
