Shared Decision Making in Community Care
Shared decision making has consistently been referenced as a key principle of modern healthcare but is too often still not fully practised by clinicians or experienced by patients. Recent studies have shown patients with long-term conditions such as asthma, are willing to take part in shared decision making, yet this is not optimally provided.1
During this webinar, Ms Joanne King offers practical tools and shares best practices of how she implements SDM in community care. Use of decision aids, the importance of addressing patient believes and values with clear, patient-friendly language is discussed.
This webinar also brings in a patient’s perspective and personal experience of SDM, highlighting the importance of involving patients in decisions about their care in order to have a meaningful impact on their overall asthma control.
