Treatment Choice Champions Quality Improvement Activity

Shared Decision Making is a key component in patient-centered engagement & care. As providers, it is our responsibility to ensure we work with our patients to make decisions, evaluate medical needs, and develop care plans that balance optimal patient outcomes with patient specific values & priorities.

Intervention: Use the Stages of Change resources to support the care team with identifying each patient on the stages of change steps. Partner with each patient using the patient Stages of Change resource and talk through their current step and their goals.

Resource Tool: Stages of Change – Staff Resource provides more in-depth detail about each step. The Stages of Change – Patient Resource provide patient specific examples as you review during your conversation. Use the Set Goals to Thrive Worksheet to write down goals.
