Increasingly, patients are faced with health decisions that have many options, uncertain outcomes, and benefits and harms that are valued differently by each individual. There is no single right answer about how to proceed. Shared decision making recognizes the importance of having patients and providers work together to select tests and treatments, though more clarity is needed on what it means and how it is implemented in day‐to‐day care. This session will provide examples of shared decision making across the care continuum and across the lifespan. Panelists during this breakout session at the 2019 PCORI Annual meeting highlight how shared decision making includes evaluation of options based on care goals, concerns, and personal context of individuals.
