Shared Decision Making

When an Interpreter Is Needed: A Case Study With Latino Men at Risk for Prostate Cancer

This Robert Wood Johnson Foundation–sponsored project will develop measures specific to interpreted shared decision making, which can be useful for further research and program development to improve patient-centered care for limited English proficiency patients using an interpreter.  The project also will produce easy-to-use tools to help improve shared decision making for use in interpreted patient visits; these tools can be used by providers, interpreters, and patients.
