My latest USA Today column was published this morning: Complex health choices require shared decisions.
With so many grey areas in medicine, there is often not a single, absolute answer.
I make the case for shared decision making: “The voice of patients needs to be considered for most medical decisions. That way, no matter what choice is made, it will always be the right one.”
Incidentally, there was a piece published by Jerome Groopman and Pamala Hartzbrand in the WSJ this past weekend along the same vein.
Enjoy the piece.
