Patient-centered care: evaluation and implementation

  • Description
  • Description

    The research group “patient-centered care: evaluation and implementation” addresses research questions related to the development and evaluation of interventions that aim to foster patient-centered care.

    The main focus of the work is on patient engagement and shared decision-making, among other dimensions of patient-centered care.

    One main research interest is on implementation studies that foster routine implementation of shared decision-making.

    Another main research interest is related to the development and testing of measures to assess shared decision-making and other dimensions of patient-centered care. In this context, the research group also conducts systematic reviews of measures.
