Canada Research Chair in Shared Decision Making and Knowledge Translation

France Légaré participated in the most Shared Decision-Making studies from 2009 to 2018

Lu and colleagues aimed to systematically analyze the global development trends and research focuses of shared decision-making (SDM) studies as a reference for researchers. Up to April 17, 2019, a total of 6,629 studies on SDM were identified as published between 2009 and 2018. Legare F participated in the most studies (n = 101). The number of studies concerning SDM has continued to increase since 2009, with the United States leading the field. The landscape of the basis of SDM included mainly concept, practice framework and effect assessment of SDM. “Informed consent,” “Surgery,” “Depression,” “Older adult,” and “Patient-centered care” reflected the latest research focuses, and should receive more attention.
