In this chapter, we discuss an interprofessional approach to shared decision making (SDM) and provide a practical approach for engaging clinical teams. Interprofessional SDM is the process by which patients are supported to become involved in decision making, have their decisional needs met, and reach quality decisions that are agreed upon by them and two or more health care professionals. Six steps for implementing interprofessional SDM within clinical teams are based on innovative practice changes, research studies, and the Knowledge to Action Framework. The six steps are: engaging clinical teams, identifying priority decision(s), finding quality patient decision aids, providing interprofessional training, defining responsibilities of team members, and monitoring use and outcomes. These six steps are illustrated with exemplars from home care services, prostate cancer programs, and a pediatric diabetes clinic. Combining SDM with an interprofessional approach holds promise for more successful implementation and improved health outcomes.
