This course is about resonating with your experience and meaningfully engaging patients to make good decisions and to address the significance of interprofessional collaborations in health care.
Service users’ experience and views across all points on health promotion, management and support services are crucial to developing optimal health care practice. Join Prof Elwynis a leader committed in Shared Decision Making (SDM) practice and research to promote high quality decision making. Taking into account the best scientific evidence available, he will explain to you how this collaborative process and the use of decision-aids help eliciting patients’ beliefs and integrating patient preferences and priorities to treatment options after thorough considerations of the trade-offs.
Together, we are oriented to the interprofessional collaborative initiative that synergizes the strengths among health care allies toachieve optimal clinical practice and health outcomes. Renowned experts in various health care fields share their first hand experiences, eliciting profound insights and wisdoms about interprofessional collaborations. This is aspirational in learning to reflect, decipher, interpret and construct ways in enhancing effective coordination of care to meet health needs. Making sense of the SDM and IPC concepts and recognizing the available evidences and resources is crucial to enabling good team dynamics.
