Table 5 Relation between shared decision making behaviors and physician intention

From: Impact of DECISION + 2 on patient and physician assessment of shared decision making implementation in the context of antibiotics use for acute respiratory infections

Shared decision making behaviors
  D-Option (patient) D-Option (physician) Assumed role (patient) (Active or collaborative vs. passive role)
Intention (physician) Regression coefficient ± standard error p-value Regression coefficient ± standard error p-value Regression coefficient ± standard error p-value
Entry -0.1 ± 0.91 0.892 3.5 ± 0.71 < 0.012 0.0 ± 0.13 0.814
Exit 0.5 ± 1.01 0.602 4.3 ± 0.81 < 0.012 0.1 ± 0.23 0.604
  1. 1Increase in the average value of D-Option when the variable intention (physician) increased by one point (on a scale of -3 to +3).
  2. 2Evaluated with generalized linear mixed models to adjust for cluster design.
  3. 3With every increase of one point on the intention scale, the chances of a patient being active or collaborative rather than passive increased by e regression coefficient (0% at entry and 11% at exit).
  4. 4Evaluated with generalized estimating equations to adjust for cluster design.
