Shared Decision Making Interventions for People with Mental Health Conditions
Description of Resource:
Mental health conditions are common and can have serious consequences for both affected individuals and society. Current clinical guidance encourages mental health care practitioners to involve patients in treatment decisions. This systematic review identified 2 trials of interventions to increase shared decision making in people with mental health conditions. One study indicated that the intervention increased patient satisfaction in the short term. One study indicated that doctor facilitation of consumer involvement in decision making was increased by the intervention, but no effects were found on the clinical or health service outcomes in either study.
