The Society for Medical Decision Making is pleased to announce its 17th Biennial SMDM European Conference will be held 10-12 June, 2018 in Leiden, The Netherlands. Leiden is a beautiful historic city, and only 20 minutes by direct train from Schiphol International Airport.
For decades, SMDM members have sought to improve decision making, incorporating the strength of current evidence and methods to weigh risks and benefits from the perspectives of the individual, health system, and society. The 2018 conference special focus is on Personalized and Value-Based Health Care.
Our aim is to bring together high quality oral and poster presentations from health services research, psychology, epidemiology, health economics, and other scientific disciplines involved in the study of medical decision making. The combination of short courses, symposia and research presentations continues to foster lively debates and deeper understandings of how our scientific research can be applied to improve care.
Conference attendees will enjoy opportunities to interact with leaders in prediction and decision modelling, cost-effectiveness analysis, implementation research, shared decision making, and the other areas encompassed by medical decision making, as well as with policy makers at both the hospital and national level.
