Join us on Wednesday, Sept 28 at 1:00 p.m. ET for an overview of shared decision-making (SDM) tools and ways to inform practice. SDM interventions enable people to actively manage their own health. In this session, we will examine research on the effects of SDM and review best practices, including advancing SDM practice.

Maria O'Connell is an associate professor in the department of Psychiatry at the Yale School of Medicine and the Director of Research and Evaluation at the Yale Program for Recovery and Community Health. I oversee the research and evaluation components of federal and state grants related to recovery-oriented care, self-determined healthcare, addictions, citizenship, and social inclusion. I am particularly interested in applying participatory, mixed research methods to the understanding and development of mechanisms that enhance stakeholder engagement in research, self-determination, and choice within the behavioral health and medical systems of care.
