Organizational- and system-level characteristics that influence implementation of shared decision-making and strategies to address them — a scoping review
Shared decision-making (SDM) is poorly implemented in routine care, despite being promoted by health policies. No reviews have solely focused on an in-depth synthesis of the literature around organizational and system-level characteristics (i.e., characteristics of healthcare organizations and of healthcare systems) that may affect SDM implementation.
