Many decisions — from the small to the significant — are made at every stage of delivering patient care. At UPMC, our patient-centered approach actively involves you and your family in your care by using a process known as shared decision making. Shared decision making lets you explore your options and determine the course of care that best matches your goals and values. This is particularly important for patients — and their caregivers — with major health concerns or who need to manage a chronic or long-term condition.
By involving you and your family in care decisions, UPMC strives to deliver the best possible care you want to receive at every stage of your health care journey.
