Our team publishes an article in the jounal The Gerontologist

Our team recently published an article in the journal The Gerontologist entitled: Opens external link in new windowShared Decision Making About Housing Transitions for Persons With Dementia: A Four-Case Care Network Perspective.

Persons with dementia (PWDs) and their caregivers often face difficult housing decisions, that is, decisions about their living arrangements, in which the perspectives of all members of the care network should be involved. The study aim to assess the extent to which housing decisions for PWDs with their formal and informal caregivers correspond to an interprofessional shared decision making (IP-SDM) approach, and what light this approach sheds on their experiences with decision making. Results show that while the IP-SDM model was helpful, the options change with cognitive decline and moving to a nursing home can become inevitable in spite of preferences.

Our team publishes an article in BMC Health Services Research

Our team recently published an article in the journal BMC Health Services Research entitledOpens external link in new window Pregnant women's views on how to promote the use of a decision aid for Down syndrome prenatal screening: a theory-informed qualitative study.

The decision about whether to undergo Down syndrome prenatal screening is not an easy one for pregnant women and their partners. Patient decision aids can help patients made informed decisions. In this study, the authors used the Behaviour Change Wheel, which is a method for designing and evaluating interventions, to identify behaviour change techniques that could lead pregnant women to want to use the patient decision aid for Down syndrome prenatal screening. Next, the authors explored the perceptions of pregnant women about these pre-identified behaviour change techniques.

New publication in the journal Academic pediatrics: Post-training shared decision-making barriers and facilitators for pediatric healthcare providers: a mixed methods study

France Légaré contributes to an article in the journal Academic pediatrics entitled Opens external link in new windowPost-training shared decision-making barriers and facilitators for pediatric healthcare providers: a mixed methods study.

The study aimed to assess barriers and facilitators of shared decision-making (SDM) for pediatric healthcare providers (PHCP) after they have been trained in SDM. Findings reveal that despite training and positive intentions, many HCPs report not subsequently using SDM. They identified numerous post-training barriers to its use. To overcome SDM barriers and improve uptake, HCPs recommend creating a socially supportive environment through a team-based approach to SDM training and implementation. These findings can inform SDM training and implementation interventions at pediatric health care centers.

New publication in the journal JMIR: Psychosocial Factors of Health Professionals’ Intention to Use a Decision Aid for Down Syndrome Screening: Cross-Sectional Quantitative Study

Our team has published an article in the journal JMIR entitled Opens external link in new windowPsychosocial Factors of Health Professionals’ Intention to Use a Decision Aid for Down Syndrome Screening: Cross-Sectional Quantitative Study.

Decisions about prenatal screening for Down syndrome are difficult for women, as they entail risk, potential loss, and regret. Shared decision making increases women’s knowledge of their choices and better aligns decisions with their values. Use of patient decision aids is one of the most promising strategies for implementing shared decision making but they are rarely used in the prenatal screening context. In this article we identified factors influencing the intention of health professionals to use a decision aid during prenatal visits for decisions about Down syndrome screening.
