Etude DECICOMPARE :
Shared Decision-Making in patient with chronic conditions among the French e-cohort ComPaRe : an online cross-sectional survey
Patients with chronic diseases have to make many decisions throughout their disease journey. The decisions they face are complex, present many options, with potentially limited levels of evidence or conflicting outcomes. Patients may need support when making healthcare decisions.
Shared Decision Making (SDM) is a process by which healthcare professionals and patients work together to make healthcare choices among different options. The professional, the patient and their families learn about the options available and make the decision together, taking into account the patient's clinical evidence, values and preferences. This is an ethical imperative that improves healthcare choices and reduces decision-making conflicts. Few data are available in France on the implementation of SDM, particularly for patients with chronic diseases.
A cross-sectional study was conducted in a French e-cohort of chronic diseases patients, ComPaRe. The aims of the study were 1) to assess the level of Shared Decision Making perceived among patients with chronic diseases about their care in the last 12 months; 2) to identify factors associated with the SDM level ; and 3) to investigate decision regret experienced by patients following a decision and factors associated with it.
