SMDM’s inaugural Asia-Pacific Conference, Informing Health Care Decision-Making with Evidence, will join the annual SMDM meeting held in North America and the biennial SMDM-Europe conference as venues to promote medical decision making principles and skills internationally, to delve deeply into region-specific priority areas, and to build a regional and international network of colleagues working in this area.
