- On the Shared Decision Making month website I found this wonderful piece, How to Become An Activated Patient containing a few, easy to remember tips, and some real life examples on how they were used.
- I also found a worksheet entitled I wish I had Asked that: A worksheet to help guide you during your appointment today that I thought would be helpful.
There’s more information on the website including blog posts like this one – Health Coaching Provides Unbiased, Individual Support – that gives an example of how shared decision making can work.
Patients are people, too!
I hope you can use these resources so that the next time you have a visit with your doctor you leave feeling confident that you’ve participated in the decisions that affect you.
