Minimally disruptive medicine (MDM) seeks to advance patient goals for health, health care, and life, using effective care programs designed and implemented in a manner that respects the capacity of patients and caregivers and minimizes the burden of treatment – the healthcare footprint – the care program imposes on their lives.

This site is maintained by researchers at the KER UNIT who are part of an international research team that is working on understanding and implementing MDM across the world.

Some introductions to MDM:

Minimally Disruptive Medicine: Thinking differently about nonadherence

In a follow up to Disutility: Finding the balance between benefit and hassle, I present this video from the North American Primary Care Research Group  (NAPCRG) Annual Meeting.

The answer to healthcare is education. Nevermind the other aspects of their life, nevermind that they have multiple diseases, side effects of medications, and not enough time in the day to do all the health 'work' that we give them . Teach patients, yell at patients, scare them into doing what you (the doctor) says. And if they don't take responsibility and do it, then... fire them as your patient!

Or not.

Dr Victor Montori, champion of Minimally Disruptive Medicine, explains a radical new way to think about "nonadherence" and the work that we give our patients to do.
