The Physician’s Weekly #PWChat series continued with another thoughtful discussion on Wednesday, Sept. 6, which focused on the shared decision making process between doctors and their patients in the ED.

It was co-hosted by Marc Probst, MD, and Hemal Kanzaria, MD, and was inspired by their recent article Shared Decision Making in the ED. This TweetChat included the topics: why there are still misconceptions surrounding how and when to use shared decision making; necessary and sufficient factors for determining if a clinical scenario is appropriate for shared decision making; and much more!
