Clinical research provides knowledge that is essential to healthcare quality, but it is too infrequently incorporated into everyday practice. One method to address this issue is shared decision making, a collaboration process between clinician and patient based on the consideration of the scientific evidence and of the patient's values and preferences. This process can be supported by decision aids, tools that present the relevant scientific knowledge in an accessible way and help to focus the discussion on the patient.

However, experience teaches us that simply creating and distributing decision aids is not sufficient to ensure their use in clinical practice. The overall aim of this research program is to promote the use of patient-centered interventions such as decision aids, thus optimizing translation of clinical research into practice in primary healthcare. We will investigate the design, implementation into practice, sustainability, and effect on patients of these interventions. Specifically, projects included in this program aim to understand the factors that promote or inhibit the routine embedding of the decision aids in clinical encounters.

This will lead to the development and testing of user-centered strategies for the integration of these tools in the routines of practitioners. We will also look to strengthen the methodologies associated with patient-oriented research focusing on the implementation of interventions into practice. In the end, if effective, we will contribute to optimize the delivery of health care in a way that can bring about rapid and meaningful benefits to patients and populations.
