Slide notes:Let us spend some time discussing some of the key paradigm shifts in medicine. The first of which is the shift from a physician-centric model of care to a patient-centric model of care. Just a few decades ago, patient care options were determined by the provider and patients were offered limited or no opportunity to make decisions. In the past few years there has been a cultural shift towards giving patients greater responsibility for their care. There has been a shift from paternalism, or the opinions of the physician, to patient autonomy, or the opinion of the patient. 6
