Our team has published an article in the journal CMAJ Open entitled: Shared decision-making experienced by Canadians facing health care decisions: a Web-based survey. The study aimed to assess how much shared decision-making Canadians experienced in health-related decisions in 2017. A cross-sectional online survey in January 2018 with a Web-based panel of Canadians representing all 10 provinces was conducted. The study reveals that Canadians in all 10 provinces experienced a low degree of shared decision-making in 2017. Increased age, living in a rural area, living in the province of Quebec, and not being white significantly decreased the level of shared decision-making experienced.
