Our team published an article in the magazine Pluralages. Pluralages magazine is a publication of the Centre for Research and Expertise in Social Gerontology (CREGES) of the Integrated University Center for Health and Social Services (CIUSSS) of the Centre-Ouest-de-l'Île-de-Montréal. It is published once or twice a year. Our article is entitled: Implementating shared decision-making in home care teams: From 2017 to the present. When older adults begin to lose their autonomy, they and their informal caregivers have to decide on an appropriate living environment. To ensure that they make an informed choice, a shared decision-making approach is both helpful and necessary. Naturally this approach involves several stakeholders and areas of expertise. Since 2007, we have been conducting research on the implementation of shared decision-making in home care teams. Taking into account the challenge of this process when several stakeholders and areas of expertise are involved, our team has developed a conceptual model for an interprofessional approach to shared decision-making. As we build on our findings, we aim to implement the model on a wider scale and possibly adapt it to other contexts as well. Authors: France Légaré, Sylvie-Marianne Rhugenda.
