Shared decision making in psychiatry
In the paradigm of recovery-oriented care in mental health the central decision model is shared decision making (SDM). In the article we describe the model of SDM and the reason why it has been identified as important in mental health care. We also review the central literature of SDM in mental health and some of the decision aids just beginning to be developed to enhance SDM, thereby pointing to the need of documenting the effect of using decision aids and to further research on the effect of SDM on the recovery process of people in mental health care.
