The SHARE Approach | Agency for Healthcare Research & Quality (AHRQ)

New AHRQ Tools Available To Support Shared Decision-Making

AHRQ is offering tools to support health care providers who seek to use patient-centered outcomes research findings in shared decision-making. The tools and upcoming train-the-trainer workshops are part of the Agency’s SHARE Approach, a five-step process aimed at increasing the use of evidence in shared decision-making between health care providers and patients. The SHARE Approach tools include reference guides, posters and other resources that support shared decision-making in clinical practice settings. Workshop participants are encouraged to train other clinicians to implement the SHARE Approach in their own organizations. Registration is open for the first SHARE Approach workshop in St. Louis, Missouri, on January 23, 2015. Other workshops will be available soon in locations across the country. Workshop participants are eligible for seven hours of continuing medical education credits and continuing education units.

What is Shared Decision Making? 

Shared decision making occurs when a health care provider and a patient work together to make a health care decision that is best for the patient. The optimal decision takes into account evidence-based information about available health care options, the provider's knowledge and experience, and the patient's values and preferences.

The SHARE Approach

A five-step process for shared decision making that includes exploring and comparing the benefits, harms, and risks of each option through meaningful dialogue about what matters most to the patient.

Step 1: Seek your patient's participation.
Step 2: Help your patient explore and compare treatment options.
Step 3: Assess your patient's values and preferences.
Step 4: Reach a decision with your patient.
Step 5: Evaluate your patient's decision.

SHARE Approach Tools

The SHARE Approach tools are a collection of references guides, posters, and other resources that support implementation of AHRQ's SHARE Approach to shared decision making in clinical practice settings. Tools in this collection include:

  • Step-by-step tips and sample talking points for implementing the SHARE Approach with patients.
  • Tips to communicate with patients who may come from different cultures or have limited skills in language or understanding of numbers and using the Teach-Back technique to enhance shared decision making.
  • An implementation guide for clinical practice teams.
  • A brief for administrators and other senior leaders outlining the benefits of using shared decision making.

SHARE Approach Workshop

The SHARE Approach Workshop is a one-day, accredited train-the-trainer program developed by AHRQ to help health care professionals work with patients to make the best possible health care decisions together.

This training focuses on how to engage patients in their health care decision making and how to use patient-centered outcomes research (PCOR) information tools and resources (e.g., patient decision aids) to help patients understand their treatment options and to explore their own values and preferences.

Seven hours of continuing medical education credits/continuing education units (CME/CE) will be awarded to participating physicians, physician assistants, nurses, nurse practitioners, certified diabetes educators, certified health educators, and pharmacists.
