About the Shared Decision Making Working Group

Shared decision making (SDM) is central to patient-centered care and is at the crossroads between evidence-based medicine and patient-centered care. In the last decade, there has been increasing interest in SDM in rheumatology and an imperative to use SDM to achieve optimal care.

The use of consensus-building methods following the OMERACT Filter 2.1 methodology, grounded in a patient-oriented approach, led to strong endorsement of a core domain set for SDM interventions in rheumatology trials.

Future research will include the development of a core outcome measurement set to identify instruments to assess these domains in trials of SDM interventions.
