Background
We face a new era of democratizing knowledge, where patients shift from passive to active involvement in decision making. This so-called Shared Decision Making demands new and flexible approaches in GP training but suffers from lack of implementation.
The aim is to develop a flexible competency-based integrated educational program for Shared Decision Making, which will be designed in line with the current patient movement initiatives and with tailoring to the opportunities of local GP training institutes.
