We are delighted to announce that the 7th International Shared Decision Making conference will take place in Lima, Perú between June 16 and June 19, 2013.
The scientific committee has designated this meeting’s central theme to be:
Globalizing SDM: Pacientes @ the centre of healthcare.
The theme seeks to highlight that shared decision making is a key component of something more global, i.e., patient-centered care, and that its application is only relevant as part of a commitment to care for and about patients.
But also, in using different languages and a technological character, we also seek to highlight the notion that shared decision-making is currently an opportunity afforded at best to very few patients, mostly in high-income countries, and in these, those who are fortunate to have access to outstanding patient-centered care. Thus, our area of inquiry and activity, much to our chagrin, can increase disparities in healthcare that seem so contrary to our values. Furthermore, there are cultural and contextual factors that ought to be understood in order to successfully involve patients in decisions about their care.
In ISDM Perú 2013, we invite investigators and concerned partners in healthcare delivery research and practice to struggle with the issues that arise as shared decision making globalizes in scope (as a component of patient-centered care) and spread (as a component of healthcare everywhere for everyone).
Lima is a dynamic metropolis at sea level, the jewel of South America, illustrating its opportunities and challenges. Our meeting location in Lima will enable us to network, learn, and enjoy each other in a safe and exciting environment in which every detail will be considered.
We will ensure that you will have unparalleled opportunities to enjoy Peru’s rich cultural heritage, marvelous food, and engaging music.
And the time of the year is perfect to travel the country, including the best time of year to visit Cuzco (the capital of the Inca Empire) and Machu Picchu, a UNESCO World Heritage Center.
Safe the date – June 16-19 2013 and mark your maps. The journey to globalizing shared decision-making – towards patient centered care for all – begins now. See you there!
