Development and Use of Respecting Choices® Intellectual Property
Respecting Choices protects the intellectual property it has created for 2 important reasons:
The primary reason is to assure individuals, their families, and their loved ones that they are receiving person-centered care through a shared decision-making process. Respecting Choices realizes its materials can always be improved upon. Respecting Choices is open to feedback and suggestions. When improvements are made, these changes are driven by good evidence and clinical judgment rather than personal insight.
The second reason is sustainability. The work of providing and improving Respecting Choices materials requires revenue to sustain the work. Currently, revenue from the sales of Respecting Choices materials allows Respecting Choices to provide up-to-date services and materials and to carry on the development work of sustaining and improving the materials and curriculum.
