ZEBALLOS-PALACIOS, Claudia; MOREY-VARGAS, Oscar L; BRITO, Juan P  and  MONTORI, Víctor M. Shared decision making and minimal disruptive medicine in the management of chronic diseases. Rev. perú. med. exp. salud publica [online]. 2014, vol.31, n.1, pp.111-117. ISSN 1726-4634.

Chronic diseases are the leading cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. These conditions require considerable time investment and resources from the health system in Peru, as well as from patients and their families. Paradoxically, the developed medical strategies for managing these conditions generate a constant and increasing burden for the patient and their environment, which affects quality of life and therapeutic results. In this article, the role of shared decision making and minimal disruptive medicine will be described as strategies to address these problems

Keywords : Patient-centered care; Decision making; Chronic disease.
