PhD Candidate Elizabeth Franklin, UMB SSW Alum Dr. Helen Nichols and colleagues have a new paper published in the Journal of Clinical Pathways that explores patient perspectives regarding clinical pathways and their use as a shared decision-making tool in the delivery of cancer care. Using qualitative data, the authors found participants were generally unaware of the use of clinical pathways. Participants acknowledged the value of standardized care but emphasized their preference for shared decision-making and the importance of individualized care that was not limited by clinical pathway recommendations.
