Shared Decision Making3 CME Credits
Shared decision making (SDM) is an approach to involving patients in medical decisions that is appropriate when clinical evidence supports more than one approach to care. To be skilled in SDM, clinicians must be competent and confident in providing patients with evidence-based information about treatment options and outcomes, and explore patient goals and preferences in order to determine the best treatment for each patient.
