What Matters to You?
June 9th is “What Matters to You?” Day, an international healthcare holiday created per the recommendation of a 2012 New England Journal of Medicine article.
This day is meant to spark reflection on what really matters to individuals to enhance conversations between patients and clinicians. Going beyond asking "What's the matter?" by also including "What matters to you?" helps to develop deeper and more meaningful relationships between clinicians and patients leading to the development of mutual goals and shared decision making.
