The German Bertelsmann Stiftung (Bertelsmann Foundation) has recently issued a comprehensive report about national implementation of shared decision-making in nine leading countries. The report was authored by Angela Coulter, a distinguished researcher and one of the pioneers of the field. The report builds on an overview paper published in Zeitschrift für Evidenz, Fortbildung und Qualität in Gesundheitswesen (ZEFQ) prepared ahead of the 9th international conference on shared decision-making (Lyon 2017). OCHER members contributed to that paper. For communication researchers in general and those interested in SDM particularly the report provides a must-read overview of the state of affairs in this field around the world in 2017.
