Use of implicit persuasion in decision making about adjuvant cancer treatment: A potential barrier to shared decision making



abstract:
Use of implicit persuasion in decision making about adjuvant cancer treatment: A potential barrier to shared decision making


Highlights

Section 1: What is already known on this subject.
Shared decision-making (SDM) is widely advocated, especially when there is no obvious best treatment option.
A prerequisite of SDM is treatment information provision without implicit value judgements, i.e., implicit persuasion.
There is no evidence on whether implicitly persuasive behaviours are used in oncological practice, and if so, which.
Section 2: What this study adds.
Implicit persuasion is frequently used, irrespective of expected treatment benefit, and is associated with a greater likelihood of reaching a decision.
Clinicians must realize that the use of implicit persuasion can subvert their intent to share decisions with patients.
