POCAPALOOZA | EBPOM USA, PASS clinic and shared decision making

The focus for the first part of this POCAPALOOZA was Duke University's PASS clinic.

Find out more about the PASS clinic:

"So it's a new approach to really changing the paradigm from just evaluating a patient and sort of passing that information forward to the receiving team [...] rather we take a much more proactive progressive approach to identify those chronic co-morbid conditions and try to bend that curve, we try to modify that which may be modifiable"
