The main idea underlying the informed shared medical decision is that patients should be informed by independent consultants who would help them to make more accurate decision regarding medical interventions. It is suggested that experts hired by a health insurance company or government agency are more objective in their recommendations,
This paper will explain the seven principles of patient-clinician communication. It will then apply three of those principles to my interactions with my patients. Next, it will describe three methods being used in my area of practice to improved communication between the patients and clinicians. It will ultimately choose one of those principles that applies best to my practice and clearly describe how I use it. It will describe ethical principles that can be applied to issues with patient-clinician communication.

The thesis of this chapter states that in certain situations, it is crucial to listen to a medical professional, however, in others, it is very important to listen to yourself and also to do what you feel is right.

If the choice you make is incorrect, then it could potentially be a matter of life and death. Atul Gawande gives multiple examples of patients that have made wrong and right decisions to prove his point. He uses the personal anecdotes of four different people, with four decisions to prove his point.
A dominant decision maker definitely need to be seeked primarily to be educated for the sake of the client’s health because they will be making the decisions when the OT is and not in the presence of the
