Webinar: Can we increase the uptake of shared decision making in Australia?
22 October 2019, 12:30pm – 01:30pm AEST

The Australian Centre for Value-Based Health Care is pleased to present the next in our ongoing series of free webinars ‘Can we increase the uptake of shared decision making?’ 

Shared decision making is a process of involving patients in making informed and preference-based decisions about their care and treatment.  Despite a growing evidence base, uptake in Australia has been slow. Join Tara Dimopoulos-Bick, Regina Osten and Professor Lyndal Trevena as they explore, discuss and debate potential approaches for advancing the uptake of shared decision making in Australia. This webinar may be relevant to organisations wanting to support a culture of shared decision making and meet the National Safety and Quality Healthcare standards in Australia.
