Our colleague Alfred TOI publishes an article on decisional needs assessment among seniors receiving home care services

In Canada, seniors receiving home care services often face difficult decisions that can affect their health and well-being. A pan-Canadian web-based survey of 460 seniors receiving home care services was conducted to identify the most common difficult decisions, and to measure the clinically significant decisional conflict associated with it. Factors associated with decisional conflict were also identified.
The most frequent difficult decisions concerned housing and safety (57.2%), managing health conditions (21.8%), and end-of-life care (8.3%). In addition, 14.6% of seniors mentioned having experienced clinically significant decisional conflict.
Factors associated with higher clinically significant decisional conflict were: 1) preferred option not matching the decision made; 2) passive role in decision-making; 3) lower quality of life; and 4) household size > 4 people.
These results will help developing targeted shared decision-making interventions in order to promote informed decision-making and reduce decisional conflict.
