Last week, The Society for Participatory Medicine held a learning exchange entitled “Shared Decision Making in Imaging: How Should Patients and Physicians Discuss the Costs of Care” in partnership with the American College of Radiology, For those who were not able to join us, please find the archive here.
Many helpful resources were shared over the course of the learning exchange and we’ve included them below for your reference, along with our speakers, who did a wonderful job in putting a spotlight on this important topic.
Matt Hawkins, MD, Pediatric Interventional Radiologist, Assistant Professor, Emory University School of Medicine

What is the Learning Exchange?
We are each individually advancing the participatory medicine movement in our day-to-day lives and interfaces with healthcare and/or our work. Understanding the work we are conducting within our individual silos can help us learn from one another, allow us to build upon ideas, forge collaborations, provide a forum for feedback and suggestions, and hopefully avoid duplication of efforts. Helpful tips and best practices we’ve adopted as we navigate the healthcare system can also be beneficial to others. The SPM Learning Exchange is a forum launched in 2016 to help us learn from one another and capture the work underway within participatory medicine under one umbrella. If you are interested in presenting your work, best practices or tips during a future learning exchange, please submit here. If you have any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
