Webinar: Shared Decision Making In Psychiatry: Fostering The Therapeutic Alliance In The Digital Age
**Due to the format of this webinar, participants will need to utilize their computer speakers to hear the audio portion of the presentation.**

Location: Online Via

Shared decision making is a patient engagement strategy that is an emerging best practice in health care. Through this process, patients and their providers can exchange information, weigh treatment options, and make a decision that is aligned with the individual patient’s preferences, values, and needs. While patient engagement has traditionally relied on the care team, digital technology is becoming more widely available and can assist in this process.

In this webinar, Jason Caplan, MD, and Susan Bergeson discuss the process of shared decision making and its potential benefits from both the patient and provider perspectives, review barriers in implementing shared decision making, explore tips and tools to address these barriers, and consider the implementation of digital technology in supporting shared decision making in psychiatry.

Speakers are paid consultants to Otsuka Pharmaceutical Development & Commercialization, Inc.
