Decision+

 

DECISION+ is an innovative training program for physicians. It integrates multiple educational/behavioral change components that aim at promoting shared decision making with respect to treatment option. We hypothesize that shared decision making should result in optimal use of medication by patients.


 

Pilot Study

The objective of DECISION+ pilot RCT was to evaluate the feasibility of a larger trial, in order to determine the program's efficacy to promote optimal use of antibiotics for ARI.

Preview of DECISION+:

  • Training session
    • This power point presentation is a summary of the DECISION+ pilot training program. It was presented as a workshop at the 5th International Shared Decision Making Conference which took place June 14-17 2009 in Boston, MA, USA.
  • Decision support tool

DECISION+2 randomized control trial

This project, to be carried out from 2009 to 2012, will use as a baseline the data gathered during our pilot program. The pilot’s main goal was to establish the feasibility of conducting the project at a larger scale. Therefore, the current project will assess the impact of DECISION+2 on antibiotics use for acute respiratory infections (ARI) – the main reason for medical consultations in a large sample of family medicine teaching practices. 

This project is being funded by the FRSQ-Conseil du Medicament.
