This study in the International Journal of Nursing Studies looked at the role of primary care nurses in coaching patients in shared decision making about their treatment. It evaluated an approach to support nurses in coaching patients, which was found to have a positive impact overall. Nurses became more aware of their own attitudes and learning needs and reported more in-depth discussions with patients. However, nurses struggled to integrate the approach in routine care and highlighted the need to receive support from their practice to implement the new approach.
