Prostate Cancer

4 p.m., Saturday, April 29  
Presenter: Frank Robert Reilly, MD, and J. Derek Thompson, MD, The Villages Health®

Helping Patients Take an Active Role in Their Own Health Care

Shared Decision Making is a key component of the patient-centered health care model. With Shared Decision Making, the trusted hometown doctor provides sound knowledge, enabling patients to make good health care decisions based on what’s best for themselves. This eliminates the possibility of ulterior motives, like parties cashing in on unnecessary tests and procedures. As an example, Drs. Reilly and Thompson discuss how prostate cancer has become a commonly over-diagnosed condition – leading to an overreaction of treatment procedures, which, in some cases, can be far worse than the disease itself.
