Table 4 Directed content analysis of the defining characteristics of shared decision-making

From: Conceptualizing patient-centered care for substance use disorder treatment: findings from a systematic scoping review

Defining Characteristics a Representative Example of Content Coded
Client and provider dialogue to reach a mutual decision (n = 31) b “The form of NRT [Nicotine Replacement Therapy] selected is a joint decision made by the client and advisor, and is based on the client’s individual smoking habits and feelings as well as any contraindications.” [76]
Autonomous decision-making (n = 17) c “Participants appreciated the practitioners’ active listening skills. For example, one client noted that her request to not use tablets or patches for smoking cessation was recognised by the practitioners as the topic was not broached again in consultations.” [94]
