Informing and Involving Patients in Medical Decisions: The Primary Care Physician's Perspective
The Foundation for Informed Medical Decision Making (FIMDM) commissioned Lake Research Partners (LRP) to conduct this survey among primary care physicians on shared decision making (SDM), in which the patients and providers work together to select tests and treatments.
The report discusses that, using SDM, well-informed patients and providers can determine the best choice, helping deliver patient-centered, high quality care.
The report includes a survey that gives the statistics on primary care physicians' perspectives on, experiences with, benefits of, and barriers to, SDM.
