Vanderbilt Kennedy Center Lecture: Supported Decision Making

January 18 @ 4:10 pm - 5:10 pm

This presentation will introduce the theory and practice of Supported Decision-Making (SDM), where older adults and people with disabilities work with trusted friends, family members, and professionals to understand the situations and choices they face, so they may make their own decisions. SDM is associated with increased self-determination, or life control, which has been linked with improved life outcomes. Thus, SDM may help medical professionals improve patient communication, collaboration, health and wellbeing across the life course.

Featured Speaker: Jonathan G. Martinis, J.D., Senior Director for Law and Policy, The Burton Blatt Institute at Syracuse University
