Health care journalists head to Boston

I’ll be in Boston this week to co-lead a workshop at the Association of Health Care Journalists (AHCJ) annual conference (12:45 pm, Thursday) on how to improve news coverage of medical studies and research.

This is, I think, the 6th such workshop I’ve been involved in at AHCJ annual conferences through the years.



Also in Boston, on Wednesday night, I’ll moderate a panel discussion, “Shared Decision Making Along the Continuum of Care,” hosted by the Foundation for Informed Medical Decision Making. The panel will discuss – among other topics – shared decision-making in end of life care, in maternity care, in behavioral health, and in every diagnostic test consideration.



I hope to see some of you at both events.

As a result of the travel and conference commitments, I won’t be publishing much on the site this week.
