Shared Decision Making Focus Groups


The Improving Health Outcomes Together (IHOT) Team invited participants to engage in one-hour focus groups by Telehealth or Skype to share their experience and perspective with Shared Decision Making.

Shared Decision Making is defined as a “process of communication in which clinicians and patients work together to make optimal health care decisions that align with what matters most to patients.”

95 AHS staff, Health Advisory Council members and Patient and Family Advisors provided input into this project over a four month period. That input has been used to develop a report that will guide AHS in improving Shared Decision Making.
