Stub T, Musial F, Quandt SA, Arcury TA, Salamonsen A, Kristoffersen A, Berntsen G - BMJ Open (2015)

Bottom Line: Healthcare providers should assist patients in safeguarding their treatment decision.In this study, an interactive shared decision-making (SDM) tool will be developed to enable patients and health professionals to make safe health choices.Guided by the survey results, we will develop a β-version of a shared decision-making tool for healthcare providers to use in guiding patients to make safe CAM decisions.

BMJOPEN2015008236F2: Flow of activities in this research project. CAM, complementary and alternative medicine; GP, general practitioner.

Mentions: Study 3: Guided by the survey results, design and develop an SDM tool for healthcare providers to use for guiding patients to make safe CAM decisions that are in line with the patients’ health goals. We will draw on CAM information available through CAM-Cancer.org and Nifab.no. Both web pages are operated by the National Research Center in Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NAFKAM), the Arctic University of Norway, Tromsø, Norway. We also have qualitative data available from different studies on patients with cancer.3944 These data will be incorporated in the tool. When designing the tool, we will cooperate with The Norwegian Centre for Integrated Care and Telemedicine at UNN-HF. They will develop a β-version of a tool to support decision-making. The tool will be published on Internet and will be ready for patients and healthcare providers to use. Telemedicine will operate the technical version of the SDM tool. Below is the flow chart of the study (figure 2).
