November 2017
Hey Friends – You’ve probably heard about the new digital Abilify pills, with embedded sensors that send signals about whether we are using the medication as prescribed. I predict this technology will become widespread, and I worry about its use in court ordered treatment and other involuntary interventions. Here at PDA, we are dedicated to promoting shared decision making, so that we always have a voice and choice in finding the treatment that is right for us. We commit ourselves to gathering a community of experts to develop a decision aid which will support shared decision making about digital pills. We invite you to join our Conspiracy of Voice and Choice.
