What is Shared Decision Making?

Evidence suggests that if patients actively take part in managing their healthcare, they will have better outcomes than people who don't.New West Physicians embraces Shared Decision Making because our providers feel that when they work with you to manage your healthcare, and jointly select tests and treatments based on clinical evidence as well as your personal values and preferences, better outcomes are achieved.The providers at New West Physicians want you to make informed decisions so that you are not just saying 'yes' or 'no' to a particular test or treatment, but rather reaching decisions about your care together through shared understanding.Good shared decision making brings both you and your healthcare professional's expert opinions together.
