Please join me and a remarkable number of more distinguished and accomplished scholars at the Summer Institute for Informed Patient Choice. Speakers are from law, medicine, bioethics, and patient advocacy. So, there will be numerous opportunities for cross-disciplinary networking & discussion.
WHEN: June 25-27, 2014
WHERE: Dartmouth College: Hanover Inn, Hanover, New Hampshire, USA.
PURPOSE: The SIIPC conference aims to reach an audience of policy-level delegates; law, medical, and ethics leaders; and patient advocates to help health care delivery go the final mile of ensuring that patients are aware of, understand, and can make use of evidence pertaining to their well-being. That is, to make sure that no patient is left in the dark. As two sides of the same coin, law and medicine must work together to encourage policy legislation to guide practice toward a true process of patient choice. SIIPC will draw on the ethical imperative for shared decision making in health care, and participants will:
- Attain a deeper understanding of the importance of greater transparency in health care;
- Engage in joint learning about innovative health care delivery methods to promote patient-centered care, and;
- Spread innovative solutions to promote safe, high quality, and transparent patient-centered care through inter-disciplinary collaboration.
