"Usually when patients have really strong feelings, what they're really trying to tell you is what their priorities are and what they are most afraid of"  -- Dr. Michael Cyr

Join Dr. Mariam Hanna as she welcomes Dr. Michael Cyr, a leader in allergy and clinical immunology, to explore the vital role of shared decision-making in the modern practice.

On this episode:

Understanding Shared Decision-Making: Dr. Cyr breaks down the concept of shared decision-making, emphasizing its importance in integrating patient preferences with evidence-based medicine. He highlights the need for physicians to present all treatment options and their associated risks and benefits clearly.

Recognizing and Overcoming Biases: Dr. Cyr discusses the cognitive biases that affect both patients and physicians. He shares strategies for identifying these biases and ensuring they do not impede the decision-making process.

Effective Communication: Dr. Cyr stresses the importance of taking time to listen to patients. By understanding their priorities and fears, physicians can better guide them through their treatment options. He provides practical advice on framing risks and benefits to help patients make informed choices.

The Art of Medicine: Highlighting the art of medicine, Dr. Cyr shares his approach to balancing strong medical advice with patient autonomy. He uses examples such as oral food challenges to illustrate how different patients may make different decisions based on their unique perspectives.

Building Therapeutic Relationships: Dr. Cyr emphasizes the importance of maintaining a strong therapeutic relationship. He advises physicians to be patient and persistent, acknowledging that not all decisions will be straightforward and may require ongoing dialogue and trust-building.

Join Dr. Hanna and Dr. Cyr for an enlightening discussion on how shared decision-making can enhance patient care and improve outcomes in allergy and immunology. This episode is essential for healthcare professionals seeking to refine a balanced approach to patient-centered care and evidence-based practice.
