My research focuses on Shared decision-making (SDM) in diagnostic decisions in general practice. SDM refers to an approach where the patient is actively involved  in the decision making process during consultations with their physicians. Although research has shown that this method can be beneficial to patient satisfaction and treatment outcome, little is known about how and when to apply SDM in the diagnostic process. This project will investigate the use of SDM by general practitioners in training during the diagnostic phase of a consultation. The results of this research project will be used to develop educational material about SDM that can be used in the vocational training for general practitioners. With this education program we aim to improve the knowledge of future doctors on SDM and thereby contribute to better patient care.
