PRMA Believes In Shared Decision Making
By: Courtney Floyd
What is shared-decision making and why is it important in the breast reconstruction journey?
Every breast reconstruction journey is different and each individuals reason for choosing said journey is unique. But one thing remains the same—shared decision making is key for success!
Shared decision making is the most important aspect of patient centered health care! Patients and their physicians work together to make the best decisions for individualized care. It is our belief at PRMA that each patient is unique, and as such, no two breast reconstruction journeys will be alike.
Our surgeons want to know about YOU! During your consultation we want to discuss your needs, your expectations, and most importantly what you want. Then, based on your medical history, your surgeon will address each of these points from a patient health and safety perspective. We want to ensure you know all of your options when it comes to reconstruction, and the pros and cons of each.
Once everything is discussed a plan will be in place. Your plan. Created by you and your surgeon for YOU!
