Angie Meillier on Shared Decision Making in Breast Cancer

Wednesday, April 05, 2017

Angie Meillier, RN, MS, CPPM, Manager of Clinical Programs at Allina Health, discusses the importance of shared decision making and patient understanding in breast cancer and throughout oncology.

There are a number of other choices in breast cancer, as well as throughout oncology. By ensuring that a patient fully understands the options they have and the outcomes, more of the patient’s own values and preferences can be incorporated into the decisions.
