Our team has published an article in JMIR Medical Education entitled : Opens external link in new windowTeaching 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 contributes to an article published in the International Journal of Qualitative Studies on Health and Well-being entitled: Opens external link in new windowPatient 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.

      A team member publishes a new article in "Human Fertility"

      Mirjam Marjolein Garvelink, a team member, has published an article in Human Fertility entitled: Opens external link in new windowFeasibility 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.

      Using a systematic process, we developed a consult decision aid prototype to be populated with evidence from Cochrane Reviews. It was acceptable and easy to apply. Future studies will evaluate implementation of consult decision aids.

      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.
