September 25th | Shared Decision Making 101: Understanding Shared Decision Making

Shared decision making is a key component of patient-centered care but can be misunderstood or rushed-through. What exactly is shared decision making, why is this so important to improving patient's experiences and involvement in their care, and how can providers use shared decision making in clinical care? This webinar will feature an overview of the Bree Collaborative's recommendations for Shared Decision Making as developed by a workgroup of subject matter experts. The speakers will discuss when shared decision making is appropriate, benefits to patients and to providers, and how to champion shared decision making within your own organization. This webinar is appropriate for providers of all types (physicians, nurses, clinicians, specialists), health system leadership, patient safety and quality professionals, policy makers, and anyone concerned with increasing use of shared decision making.

November 14th | Shared Decision Making 103: Elevating Shared Decision Making to Uphold Health Equity

Whether your organization has adopted or is in the process of adopting Shared Decision Making techniques, there are important elements to consider to ensure that your adoption of these practices is empowering to patients of all backgrounds. This webinar will cover methods of elevating your organizational and individual SDM practices through a lens of health literacy, equity, and cultural competency by understanding and addressing language barriers, cognitive biases, and known disparities that can affect a patient's comprehension and awareness of their treatment options, hinder their involvement and empowerment in their own care, and decrease the positivity of their care experiences and outcomes.
