Abstract:The concept of shared decision-making is increasingly promoted within healthcare settings. It describes a model in which physician and patient both actively participate in decision making about treatment. Research has shown that the use of this approach may result in desirable outcomes such as greater patient satisfaction and greater adherence to treatment plans. Shared decision-making can be supported by the use of a decision aid. The purpose of the present study was to explore which decision-making process is most frequently employed by physiatrists and their attitude towards shared decision-making, in order to examine the applicability of the shared decision model in rehabilitation healthcare. The current use of a decision aid and physiatrists’ attitude towards the use of such aids were also explored. A cross-sectional survey was performed by sending a questionnaire to 408 physiatrists, identified through the Dutch association for physiatrists (VRA). The questionnaire was based on a questionnaire by Charles, Gafni, & Whelan (2004) and items by Holmes-Rovner et al. (2000).
