Shared decision-making is a collaborative process that allows the patient and provider to make health care decisions together. Studies have shown that including patients in treatment decisions and building patient trust in providers can improve health outcomes.
During this webinar, Dr. Monica Peek, Assistant Professor in the Division of General Internal Medicine at the University of Chicago and Dr. Linda Siminerio, Professor of Medicine in the Division of Endocrinology and Metabolism at the University of Pittsburgh, will explore the importance of shared decision-making and patient-provider communication for reaching underserved populations with diabetes. Dr. Siminerio will introduce the science supporting patient communication and shared decision-making. Dr. Peek will describe social and cultural barriers to shared decision-making for vulnerable populations and explore strategies providers can use to enhance shared decision-making skills. This webinar will also provide resources to support successful patient-provider interactions.
