What is the Minnesota Shared Decision Making Collaborative:
It is a multi-stakeholder community learning collaborative working to promote the routine use of Shared Decision Making (SDM) in clinical practice throughout Minnesota. We serve as a resource to those who are interested in this work and hope to enhance effective shared medical decision-making between patients and their clinicians by studying and implementing methods to assure that medical decisions are well-informed by best available evidence and consistent with patient preferences.

Purpose of Minnesota Shared Decision Making Collaborative (MSDMC):
1) To enhance effective shared medical decision-making between patients and their clinicians by studying and implementing methods to assure that medical decisions are well-informed by best available evidence and consistent with patient preferences.
2) Working with government entities, policy makers, payers and purchasers, health professionals, educators, and the media to provide support for, and remove barriers to the adoption of SDM best practices.
The collaborative consists of a standing Steering Committee and task-oriented Workgroups. Workgroups seek to include interested participants from the community who are not members of the Steering Committee.
- Implementation Workgroup - Develop a template that can be used as a guide for starting and moving forward with SDM implementation in various settings. Create an organized collection of resources and references that may be helpful for SDM implementation. Provide advice, based on personal and practical experience, about the use of methods, tools, and resources for SDM implementation in various settings
- Measurement Workgroup - Define, implement, and study a community wide decision quality measurement approach that can be used: In practice (for QI and self assessment), for accountability measures and public reporting and for research.
- Patient Engagement Workgroup - Develop and share information promoting patient and community common understanding of key concepts and language of SDM.
- Policy Workgroup- Develop recommendations and advice health plans, employers, state agencies like DHS and MDH, legislators, and other policy makers regarding policies that will best promote widespread adoption of high quality shared decision making in clinical practices.
