Shared Decisionmaking Resources
This guide describes the five steps of the SHARE Approach and encompasses the nine key elements of shared decisionmaking described by Makoul and Clayman (2006). It identifies points at which patient-centered outcomes research (PCOR) resources (e.g., patient decision aids, videos, etc.) can be introduced to facilitate shared decisionmaking and to identify patients’ preferences.
This tool is intended to provide useful tips and sample dialogue that can be used during the patient-clinician encounter to:
- Start a shared decisionmaking dialogue with patients.
- Introduce a decision aid.
- Clarify patient preferences.
Communication Tools for Shared Decisionmaking
This is a quick reference handout that offers tips for overcoming communication challenges between patients and clinicians to facilitate shared decisionmaking. This sheet includes interactive checklists on ways to effectively work with qualified medical interpreters before and during office visits.
This health literacy 101 fact sheet offers an overview of health literacy challenges in the United States, addresses universal health literacy precautions, and provides practical tips health care providers can apply when presenting decision aids to people with limited health literacy/limited English proficiency.
This quick reference handout offers tips for workshop participants on how to convey risk information and numbers in understandable terms. The handout highlights practical tips to make numbers more meaningful for patients.
This tool highlights effective teach-back techniques and describes the role of teach-back when sharing decision aids. The handout includes interactive checklists on optimal teach-back approaches to guide providers on when to use the technique, what to say, and how to say it.
This tool is designed to help workshop participants quickly assess whether they and/or their organization are taking steps toward delivering care and services that are culturally respectful and linguistically responsive.
Implementation Resources for Shared Decisionmaking
This guide is designed to support ongoing efforts among health care providers to use current and reliable evidence in everyday clinical decisionmaking. In particular, this guide provides strategies to augment shared decisionmaking between clinicians and patients with PCOR. It also highlights and encourages the application of PCOR tools and resources made available by AHRQ.
This brief is designed to highlight the benefits of using PCOR and shared decisionmaking and various incentives for adopting these processes in the clinical practice setting. The guide discusses evidence about how using decision tools and SDM can (1) improve the quality of patient care; (2) help organizations meet new legislative goals for providing patient-centered care; and (3) help organizations with achieving recognition as a patient-centered medical home or certification requirements for becoming an Accountable Care Organization.
