Mission Statement

Our mission at the Beckwith Center for Shared Decision Making is to empower patients and providers to work together as partners to decide on the best care option for each individual. 

We believe that involving patients in all aspects of their medical care increases a patient’s understanding of their treatments and improves their confidence in all their healthcare decisions.  We provide patients with high quality information on treatment options and give providers the tools and skills with which to discuss the risks, benefits and alternatives based on what matters most to the patient.
