Presentation at the Eisenberg Conference Series 2013 Meeting

I was recently invited to speak at the 2013 Eisenberg Conference held at the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ). In this talk, I provided a summary of the literature on narratives and presented important gaps that warrant future research. The topic of this meeting was ‘Preparing and Engaging Patients in the Use of Evidence in Shared Decision Making’.
