Objectives: At the conclusion of the session, the participants should be able to:

  • Identify interventions to support patients in the decision-making conversation.
  • Critique current patterns of communication that do little to assist decision making or prepare patients for surgery.
  • Articulate strategies to help develop a shared understanding about whether surgery is the right thing to do.
