Quoted: Glyn Elwyn on Shared Decision Making


Dartmouth Now takes note when faculty and other members of the community weigh in on issues of the day. Here is today’s “Quoted”:

“It’s a massive cultural change. It’s going from ‘I’m the expert, take my recommendation’ to ‘I am going to inform you and respect your wishes,’” says Dartmouth’s Glyn Elwyn in a NewsOK story about shared decision making—a process in which patients play a more active role in their personal health care.

Elwyn is a professor and senior scientist at 
The Dartmouth Center for Health Care Delivery Science and at The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy & Clinical Practice.
