Overview

A National Webinar on Patient-Centered Outcomes Research (PCOR) and the Use of Decision Aids to Facilitate Shared Decision Making

The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) will host a webinar on March 18, 2015, to discuss how patient-centered outcomes research (PCOR) findings can be used to facilitate shared decision making.

Providing patient-centered care is the foundation of new health care delivery models such as patient centered medical homes (PCMH) and Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs). PCOR provides the evidence to facilitate the provision of patient-centered care. Conveyed to patients through a process of shared decision making, PCOR can help ensure that patients’ preferences, values, and needs drive the care they receive.

The webinar will address:

  • Current requirements for PCMHs and ACOs regarding shared decision making to foster patient-centered care.
  • How the use of patient decision aids based on PCOR have been shown to facilitate shared decision making.
  • How evidence-based PCOR resources available from AHRQ’s Effective Health Care Program can be used through a SHARE Approach to facilitate shared decision making.

  • Johann Chanin, RN, M.S.N., Patient-Centered Medical Home and Neighborhood
