Risk communication is a science. And it is an integral component of risk management processes used for addressing risks of all kinds. Typical goals for Strategic Risk Communication™ are enabling people to make well-informed decisions and take responsible action on risks. Mental modeling and Mental Modeling Technology ™ figure prominently in the professional practice of risk communication.
For example, the mental models approach to risk communication was highlighted in the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s recently published resource, Communicating Risks and Benefits: An Evidence-based User’s Guide (2011). This Guide reflects more than eight years of continuing application of mental modeling application at the FDA, much of it supported by Decision Partners.
