Abstract

Shared decision making (SDM) is a process within a patient centred consultation that involves both the patient and doctor discussing management options and agreeing on management decisions in partnership. Decision aids are designed to help patients understand the options relating to management for certain conditions and their possible benefits and potential adverse effects. We discuss the evolution and rationale behind SDM and the evidence relating to outcomes, the types of decision aids available, and research relating to their use.
