Canada Research Chair in Shared Decision Making and Knowledge Translation

France Légaré contributes to an article led by Holly Witteman's team on how much shared decision making is practised in family medicine teaching clinics

France Légaré is a contributor to this article by Holly Witteman's team entitled: How often do both core competencies of shared decision making occur in family medicine teaching clinics? published in Canadian Family Physician. Authors assessed in five teaching clinics how often risk communication and values clarification (the two core competencies of shared decision making) occurred, and explored factors associated with their occurrence. They concluded that family physicians are making an effort to engage patients in shared decision making in routine daily practice, especially when there is time to do so. The greatest potential for improvement might lie in values clarification; that is, discussing what matters to patients and families.
