Shared decision making is a model of decision making wherein individuals receiving services actively participate in the information-sharing and decision-making process with their providers. Shared decision-making values the individual’s preferences, values and goals and recognizes that decisions about care are discussed deliberated between two experts, the individual (their loved ones and support persons as preferred) and the provider. In this webinar, participants will first learn the background of shared decision making, why it is important and evidence that supports its effectiveness. Second, participants will learn a model of shared decision making and the steps and skills involved. Lastly, the webinar will discuss considerations in engaging people of color in shared decision making, how to use shared decision making when making decisions about medication, and available decision support tools.

You will earn a certificate for participating in this webinar. CEUs will not be provided.
