"Shared clinical decisions and patient participation in care and research"

06.10.2020 | 16h (CET)

The patient is no longer the passive being who confides in the doctor. Humans are professionals just as much as they are patients. Treatment and monitoring of chronic conditions have changed the dynamics and balance of the doctor-patient relationship, and asymmetry in reporting no longer appears to be the norm. A new relational framework characterized by clinical decisions shared with the patient is beginning to be highlighted. How to promote patient participation in clinical decisions? What procedures to enhance the patient’s participation in decision-making?

There, he will use patient databases from the healthcare network to improve colorectal cancer screening. Since his return to Unisanté in 2018, he divides his time between clinical work in general internal medicine and an activity in teaching and research. Dr. Kevin Selby’s current research focuses on cancer prevention and the implementation of Shared Decisions in clinical practice.

Her research analyses the preferences of users in the context of health decisions which concern them. His conceptual and empirical work in cancerology relates, on the one hand, to the revelation of individual preferences and, more specifically, to shared decision-making in the doctor-patient encounter, based on the development of information and decision aids and, on the other hand, to methods of revealing collective preferences to health care users (contingent evaluation and discrete choice methods).
