Shared decision making in health care not beneficial to patient

Sharing your thoughts and discussing the symptoms and treatment benefits with your doctor does not seems to benefit the decision making and treatment. Researchers George W. Saba and Colleagues, University of California, San Francisco found in a study // in 18 patients who visited their doctor and shared the decision with their doctor.

The researchers found that shared decision making between the doctor and patient did not benefit the patient in deciding the symptoms and treatment options and the study result found that 57% of decisions taken through sharing decision had negative influence in understanding the disease and also in the treatment. The decision making seems to be influenced by trust, sentiments and other relationships rather than actual facts of the symptoms and diagnostic tests having a negative impact on decision making of the treatment. The researchers have reported the results of this study in the Annals of Family Medicine.
