This session will address the growing focus on patient- and family-centered health care and decision-making, particularly for older persons with advanced illness or making critical end-of-life decisions. Issues will include: models of shared decision-making where patients play a larger role in care choices, over/under treatment and unwanted treatment ramifications, the tools available to patients, and appropriate governmental incentives or disincentives to place the patient’s wishes front and center.
Presenters: Lynn Friss Feinberg, MSW, Senior Strategic Policy Advisor, AARP Public Policy Institute; Brian Lindberg, MA, Executive Director, Consumer Coalition for Quality Health Care; Mickey MacIntyre, Chief Program Officer, Compassion & Choices; Andrew MacPherson, Director
