Shared Decision Making

Shared Decision Making (SDM) is a collaborative process that allows patients and providers to make health care treatment decisions together, taking into account the best scientific evidence available, as well as the patient’s values and preferences. Shared Decision Making honors both the provider’s expert knowledge and the patient’s right to be fully informed of all care options and the potential harms and benefits. This process provides patients with the support they need to make the best individualized care decisions, while allowing providers to feel confident in the care they prescribe.

SDM guides help patients understand their health condition, the available treatment and screening options, and the possible outcomes of these options.

Employers: A resource to assist employees when surgical decisions need to be made – place in your onsite clinics or within your health website.
