This video is an excellent testimony of what a truly engaged and knowledgable patient with chronic diabetes looks and sounds like. Kudo’s to the Mayo Clinic for sharing this wonderful piece about Shared Decision Making.
Pay particular attention to the fact that the patient in the video was being treated for 8 years for her diabetes by her primary care physician before being referred to a clearly “patient centered” Endochronologist. Also note her belief that a patient centered approach to chronic care management probably results in shorter, more productive visits in the long run.
