Shared Decision Making in Health Care

In the USA, shared decision making (SDM) has become a high profile health policy goal since its inclusion in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA). Incentivizing clinician performance has been suggested as a means of promoting SDM uptake. After reviewing recent documents discussing the ACA, incentives, and SDM, we identified some common themes: (1) there was consensus around the definition of both SDM and patient decision aids, (2) there was no agreement regarding the best way to measure SDM; also the volume of patient decision aids was mentioned as a means of measurement, despite this being a poor proxy of SDM activity, (3) there was no agreement and a lack of detail regarding the type of incentive to use. Further refinement of incentive strategies are required if this approach is to be successful. In addition, the ethics of this approach warrants further consideration.
