Physicians' Perceptions of Shared Decision Making in Chronic Disease and Its Barriers and Facilitators
This study assessed pediatric physicians’ use of shared decision making (SDM) in two chronic conditions. Most physicians indicated that parent and adolescent trust and emotional readiness facilitated SDM, physicians’ preferred approach to decision making. At the same time, they perceived few barriers, other than insurance limitations, to using SDM.
