Teens With Illnesses Want Role in Decision-Making – Reuters Health

Read article - Quotes Glyn Elwyn, professor of The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice, in an article about a study that found that teens with chronic illnesses would like to have a say in decisions such as switching to a new medicine, but they often feel left out of the conversation. These findings "could help doctors understand that when they have teenagers who are becoming mature adults, they really need to talk to them as much, or maybe more than they talk to their parents," said Elwyn, who wasn't involved in the study.
