Cure My Way
Talya Miron-Shatz is an author, consultant, speaker, and researcher, specializing in medical decision-making. Miron-Shatz has a PhD in psychology from The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, did her post-doctoral work at Princeton University with Nobel Laureate Daniel Kahneman, taught at Wharton, and is now a full professor at the Ono Academic College and a visiting researcher at Cambridge University. She is an internationally acclaimed expert in medical decision making, with over 60 academic publications on topics such as information comprehension, patient participation in shared decision making, assessment of birth experiences, happiness, and more. She also has extensive experience in the healthcare industry, where she has consulted companies such as Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer, Samsung, NantMobile, FCB, InTouch Solutions, Edelman PR, BMS, and GSK. She uses her uncommonly broad perspective to show how the medical system sets us up for success or failure, by revealing the barriers preventing us from making good choices about everything from nutrition to medication, from fertility treatments to end-of-life care. Then, she presents her model and cutting-edge techniques from psychology and behavioral economics that help patients, physicians, and health systems overcome those barriers and own our health choices. The result is better health and wellbeing for all stakeholders, and improved bottom lines for healthcare organizations.
