"My involvement in SMDM has led to new perspectives I do not find anywhere else"

My involvement in SMDM has led to new perspectives I do not find anywhere else, such as:

1. Insight into 'Decision Psychology' an area of MDM that is not covered by any other scientific society

2. Integration of evidence with 'Decision Psychology' to contextualize evidence for locally relevant decisions

3. Cultural connotations of health-care decision-making processes
