Our team has published an article in JMIR Medical Education entitled : Teaching Shared Decision Making to Family Medicine Residents: A Descriptive Study of a Web-Based Tutorial
Residents’ use of this Web-based tutorial appeared to increase between entry periods following the changes to the SDM program, and the tutorial seemed less effective for increasing SDM knowledge scores than for diagnosis or treatment scores. However, our results also highlight the need to improve data availability before participation in Web-based SDM tutorials can be properly evaluated or knowledge scores improved.

Our team has published a protocol in BMJ Open entitled: Implementing shared decision-making in interprofessional home care teams (the IPSDM-SW study): protocol for a stepped wedge cluster randomised trial

Our team contributes to an article published in the International Journal of Qualitative Studies on Health and Well-being entitled: Patient participation in palliative care decisions: An ethnographic discourse analysis
Patients and health care providers used a variety of interpretive repertoires to covertly negotiate their roles in decision-making, and to legitimize decisions that shaped patients' dying trajectories. Discourse analysis encourages awareness of the role of language in either promoting or hindering patient participation in decision-making.

Mirjam Marjolein Garvelink, a team member, has published an article in Human Fertility entitled: Feasibility and effects of a decision aid about fertility preservation
Our results indicate that both brochures about fertility preservation and a detailed DA have beneficial effects with regard to knowledge, but the DA seemed to introduce slightly more decisional conflict than the brochures. Although we encountered challenges with recruitment, our design and measurements seem feasible and the effects of the information materials seem promising, hence justifying conducting a larger study.

Our team contributes to an article published in Maturitas entitled : Postmenopausal women with abdominal obesity choosing a nutritional approach for weight loss: A decisional needs assessment
We identified several decisional needs influencing postmenopausal women when choosing between a low-fat diet and a diet rich in fruit and vegetables. These findings could inform the design of decision support interventions that address the decisional needs of women for making and implementing informed decisions about a nutritional approach for weight loss.
