- Brief summaryBackground and aim
The majority of patients diagnosed with early stage breast cancer are eligible to decide between having a mastectomy or lumpectomy with radiation (breast conserving therapy). The long term survival for mastectomy versus lumpectomy and radiotherapy is comparable, therefore patientsí informed preferences are important in the decision making. Although most clinicians believe they involve patients in the decision making process, the information that women with breast cancer receive regarding the surgical options in breast cancer is often colored. Shared decision making can help patients to clarify their preferences. Patient decision aids support shared decision making.
The aim of this study is to pilot-test and optimize strategies for implementation of shared decision making on the treatment of early-stage breast cancer in the true clinical setting.

This study concerns a pre-post pilot implementation study, carried out from October 2014 to June 2015. The intervention consists of implementing shared decision making (SDM) using a patient decision aid. The intervention will be evaluated using qualitative and quantitative measures, acquired prior to, during and after the implementation of SDM. Outcome measures are knowledge on treatment, perceived shared decision making and decisional conflict. We also will also conduct face-to-face interviews with a purposeful sample of these patients and their caregivers to assess their experiences on implementation of shared decision making and the patient decision aid.

The outcomes and findings of this study will be used as a basis to finalise a multi-faceted implementation strategy with the intention to test the implementation of shared decision making and a patient decision aid on cost-effectiveness in a multicentre cluster RCT.
