What shared decision making means to the patient


With shared decision making, patients have the opportunity to discuss their lifestyle and preferences with their physician (or nurse practioner or physician assistant) to make healthcare decisions that are right for them.  This can be especially beneficial to patients with chronic conditions.  In these videos, two Mayo Clinic patients share their personal experiences with shared decision making and how it has changed the management of their own health.
