Respecting Choices® National Share the Experience (NSTE) 2018 Conference

October 23 - October 26

Improving Person-Centered Outcomes through Collaboration

Our second National Share the Experience (NSTE) Conference will be held on October 23-26, 2018 at the Minneapolis Airport Marriott. Submit a General Contact Form to request more detailed information, or if you have any questions.

The purpose of the NSTE 2018 conference is to share best practices and learnings from evidence-based Respecting Choices programs that jointly collaborate by combining complementary advance care planning (ACP) and shared decision-making (SDM) programs. Resulting efforts lead to change and further the advancement of person-centered care outcomes. The collaboration of PCC strategies may occur among individual, family, clinical, programmatic, educational, organizational, financial, legal, ethical, research, or policy perspectives.

The NSTE 2018 conference aligns with Respecting Choices’ mission to guide organizations and communities worldwide to effectively implement and sustain evidence-based systems that provide person-centered care (PCC). Through the promotion of collective learning and networking, this conference will help achieve the vision of transforming the healthcare culture through organizations integrating and disseminating best practices of PCC.
