Reliable knowledge for health care: process and practice of shared decision making (PROSHADE)

Public description of the goals at the beginning of the project

The project promotes cost-effective and high-quality health care based on reliable information and shared decision-making. Economic information is integrated in clinical practice guidelines to support cost-effective care. The newer Choosing Wisely recommendations have compiled evidence of inappropriate interventions in health care. We develop tools to support de-implementation of inappropriate practices in healthcare units and care decisions. Patient participation is developed by producing a digital tool to Health Village based on the needs of patients and professionals. The service enables patients to communicate their preferences and experiences of care to professionals for shared decision-making. We examine information literacy and interaction in care practice decisions between professionals and in individual patient care decisions.
