Mastering Shared Decision Making

Patient dissatisfaction with the decision making process about their treatment options can increase the risk of complaints or claims against a doctor.

Facilitating conversations effectively can result in more informed and appropriate decision making for patients. It can also increase a patient’s sense of ownership of the decision leading to better acceptance of unexpected or unwanted consequences after an adverse outcome.

Very useful, I think the shared decision making component is spot on and pulls together the strands of many, even all, aspects of medicolegal issues/claims.
