Abstract

Shared decision-making (SDM) is a structured approach to engaging patients in discussion in medical therapy when there is more than one viable option for care. SDM may decrease decisional conflict between providers and patients, increase trust, and possibly even help decrease health care costs. Much more is known about this approach in adult health care environments, but research on SDM in child health care settings is growing. This article explores unique features of SDM in pediatrics and gives examples of applications. [Pediatr Ann. 2019;48(3):e98-e100.].
