Arbetsgruppsmaterial inför SDM-workshop 21 augusti 2013 5. Shared decision making for in-patients with schizophrenia. Hamann J, Langer B, Winkler V, Busch R, Cohen R, Leucht S, Kissling W Acta Psychiatry Scand. 2006 Oct;114(4): 265-73 SDM har i denna studie använts för att engagera patienterna i heldygnsvård i medicinska beslut för att förbättra resultatet av den medicinska behandlingen. Genom psykopedagogisk undervisning om såväl sjukdomen som om olika medicinska alternativ bevisas i denna studie att patienterna fått en bättre kunskap om sjukdom, en bättre följsamhet till läkemedel och en högre delaktighet i beslut kring behandlingen. Dessutom visar studien att genom att arbeta med SDM tar det inte mer utan mindre tid för läkarna. I slutsatsen står dessutom att SDM sänker stigmatiseringen avsevärt.

Accepted for publication February 14, 2006 • The intervention studied was feasible for most patients and did not take up more of the doctorsÕ time.
• The intervention increased patientsÕ perceived involvement in medical decisions.
• The uptake of psychoeducation was increased.

Most authors classify concerning their treatment (3). It is however still SDM somewhere between the so-called Ôtraditional unclear to what extent patients with severe mental medicalÕ and the Ôinformed choiceÕ model (4, 5).
Neither the patient nor the physician should decide attitudes toward treatment as well as on treatment alone on the treatment, but they should try to patterns and physiciansÕ perceptions should be reach an agreement jointly on the treatment.
Shared Decision Making explicitly goes beyond informed consent; thus it aims to decrease theinformational and power asymmetry between doc- tors and patients by increasing patientsÕ informa- tion and control over treatment decisions thataffect their well-being (4).
