SHARE Approach Success Stories

SHARE Approach: Success Stories

In 2015, AHRQ released its SHARE Approach curriculum and tools, a collection of shared decisionmaking training resources to help health care professionals work with patients to make the best possible health care decisions together.

Between 2015 and 2016, AHRQ sponsored 20 train-the-trainer workshops around the country and trained more than 800 SHARE Approach master trainers. Since that time, a growing number of health systems, health payers, clinicians, and other professionals have used the SHARE Approach resources to train health care providers on key competencies for conducting shared decisionmaking and using patient-centered outcomes research (PCOR) to enhance patient and provider decisionmaking.

These implementation and training success stories highlight some examples of how AHRQ’s SHARE Approach curriculum and supporting tools have been used.
