Patient satisfaction, patient outcome, and healthcare costs and shared decision making

Shared medical decision-making is an important new paradigm in clinical health care.  Despite the appeal of shared decisionmaking, we have a long way to go before it can be deployed in routine clinical practice. First, we must establish the efficacy of the interventions in terms of patient satisfaction, patient outcome, and healthcare costs. To date, there have been few systematic evaluations. Studies are also necessary to address difficult problems relevant to patient readiness and the cognitive capabilities of patient participants. Finally, we need feasibility studies to determine whether and how shared decision-making can find a place in routine clinical care.
