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.

Our team has published an article in Journal of Medical Internet Research entitled : Role of Psychosocial Factors and Health Literacy in Pregnant Women’s Intention to Use a Decision Aid for Down Syndrome Screening: A Theory-Based Web Survey
Implementation interventions targeting the use of a DA for prenatal screening for DS by pregnant women should address a number of modifiable factors, especially by introducing the advantages of using the DA (attitude), informing pregnant women that they might regret not using it (anticipated regret), and presenting the use of DAs as a common practice (descriptive norm). However, interventions on moral norms related to the use of DA should be treated with caution. Further studies that include populations with low health literacy are needed before decisive claims can be made.
