Our team publishes a new article in “Journal of Clinical Epidemiology”

Our team has published an article in Journal of Clinical Epidemiology entitled: Opens external link in new windowDyadic validity of the Decisional Conflict Scale : common patient/physician measures of patient uncertainty were identified.

We aimed to assess the dyadic validity of the Decisional Conflict Scale (DCS) for assessing shared decision making in clinical consultations. We applied dyadic criteria, which consider the patient and physician as an interactive dyad instead of as independent individuals, to identify common patient/physician measures of patient uncertainty.

Application of our dyadic validation criterion indicated that the full DCS cannot be considered a dyadic measure. However, three of its subscales, values clarity, support and effective decision, are valid dyadic measures.

Our team contributes to a new article in "International Journal of Technology Assessment in Health Care"

Our team contributes to a new article in International Journal of Technology Assessment in Health Care entitled: Opens external link in new windowFramework for user involvement in health technology assessment at the local level: views of health managers, user representatives, and clinicians.

The aim of this study was to explore stakeholders' points of views regarding the applicability and relevance of a framework for user involvement in health technology assessment (HTA) at the local level. We tested this framework in the context of the assessment of alternative measures to restraint and seclusion among hospitalized adults and those living in long-term-care facilities.

The proposed framework was seen as a reference tool for making practitioners and health managers aware of the different mechanisms of user involvement in HTA and providing a structured way to classify and describe strategies. However, there is a need for more concrete instruments to guide practice and support decision making on specific strategies for user involvement in HTA at the local level.
