Shared Decision Making (SDM) is a process of engaging patients in making informed, values based decisions for preference sensitive conditions. Decision Aids (DAs) are evidence-based tools that explicitly cover the options, benefits, and risks in cases where there is more than one available treatment or diagnostic option. DAs can be an effective supplement to patient-clinician conversations.

This toolkit is designed for use by quality improvement teams in small to medium sized independent primary care practices, but we anticipate that the steps and resources will also be applicable to larger practices and those affiliated with health systems.

The website will take you step by step through assessing your clinic’s readiness to take on a new project, planning for implementation, and evaluating the results of your project. Good luck!
