Register today for SMIAdviser’s free webinar: Shared Decision Making: Activation of Patient/Provider Teams on Friday, April 19 from 12:00–1:00 p.m. EST
This webinar will cover the subtleties of shared decision making and nuances that must be present for it to succeed, which is important for individuals with serious mental illness.
Practitioners using evidence-based approaches to mental health treatment, and the people they serve, face a very real problem of translating medical evidence into a course of action that is best for the person receiving treatment. Experience has shown that it may not be enough to simply provide individuals with information and offer them a choice.
What seemed to be missing was individuals and providers conversing and working out solutions, together. This tandem approach activates a need and a desire in the individual to become fully-vested in treatment decisions, making it more likely that they’ll participate fully.
