2014 Summer Institute for Informed Patient Choice

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 wellbeing. 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.
