February 2, 2016•12 min
Host: Alicia A. Sutton
Shared decision making (SDM) is a synergistic process that allows patients and their providers to make health care decisions together and take into account the best scientific evidence available, as well as the patient’s values, goals, and preferences. It's important to invite all patients into the process even if they decline. This process increases patient satisfaction, adherence and compliance. Join host Alicia Sutton to discuss shared decision making with guest Isabelle Vacher, former nurse and Senior Vice President of Educational Strategy at AXIS Medical Education, Inc.
