What’s New at the Network
Allergy & Asthma Network conducted a survey of allergists and patients last year to gauge awareness of Shared Decision-Making (SDM). The survey also aimed to find out what barriers impact SDM use in clinical settings. Among the survey findings: most allergists and patients understand SDM, but did not often use available tools and may need guidance on how to use them.
