Recently, BE has been highlighted in dozens of theoretical and empirical articles in prestigious health care journals. Attendees for this presentation will be able to identify specific BE strategies that may not only promote patient adherence to health care recommendations but also encourage clinicians to follow best practices.
Attendees of this session will be able to:
- Define behavioral economics (BE)
- Apply the BE concept of framing to promoting clinician safety as well as family adherence to health care recommendations
- Explain how different types of social influences can be applied to improving clinical care
