Abstract:This study aims at identifying associations between SDM, age and health literacy and to examine if the relationship between age and SDM is moderated by health literacy. A cross-sectional design was adopted with 266 participants. The variable SDM was assessed with the SDM Q-9 and the CollaboRATE. Further, health literacy was assessed through the SBSQ. A Pearson correlation has been calculated. Then, a multiple linear regression was conducted to reveal a possible moderation effect of the variable health literacy on the independent variable age and the dependent variable SDM. In the post-treatment phase, SDM currently takes place occasionally. Older age was weakly associated with higher SDM (SDM Q-9), but no association between age and CollaboRate was found. Moreover, health literacy and SDM (SDM Q-9) were weakly negatively associated with each other. However, no association between health literacy and SDM measured using the CollaboRATE could be found. Moreover, the instruments SDM Q-9 and CollaboRATE were found to be strongly associated with each other. Additionally, a negative weak correlation between age and health literacy was found. The CollaboRATE did not show any significant correlations besides with SDM Q-9. Additionally, no moderating effect of health literacy on age and SDM was found.
