Shared Decision Making Tool

empowering patients with knee pain to take an active role in their healthcare journey

“Our medical culture has historically been one of assumed benevolence — that the doctor knows what is best for the patient. But it is not possible for me, as a doctor, to know what is best for my patients. The shared decision making process creates the structure for critical conversations to occur so that patients receive the treatment they want based on their personal values and preferences.”

Mary I. O’Connor, MD
