Reconstructing Informed Consent in an Era of Health System Reform
In an era of health system reform, the imperative has emerged to reassess and reevaluate how medical decisions are made between physician and patient. Studies have long demonstrated that current informed consent practices do not adequately serve patients or physicians, and, with an increasing focus on patient-centered healthcare, there is growing recognition in the medical community of the need for tangible change.
Shared Medical decision-making (SDM) offers a promising framework for physicians and healthcare institutions alike in which physicians can maximize the value of physician-patient interactions, lower instances of patient claims and liability, foster better patient and physician satisfaction and, above all else, realize the highest ideals in the practice of medicine.
In this webinar, a panel of national experts and industry leaders will explore the ethical and legal foundations of informed consent practice and the evidence-based case for shared medical decision-making.
