Shared Decision Making in Health Care

Jill E Thistlethwaite

Oxford University Press

Shared decision making (SDM) is now included in the competencies and standards for medical schools curricula. Educators may therefore promote SDM in three ways: ensuring that learning outcomes are included in their own curricula, developing appropriate learning activities, and providing opportunities for observation, feedback, and assessment. Learning should be experiential and involve interactions with both real and simulated patients. Feedback needs to be timely and constructive and ideally be a dialogue between learner and observer. It is also important to involve patients in feedback as this is very powerful. As health professionals now work frequently in teams, all practitioners involved in care delivery should develop SDM competencies.
