PhD Title: How do nurses' and allied health professionals' attitudes towards shared decision-making relate to changes in law?
Andy’s doctoral research considers how nurses' and allied health professionals’ attitudes towards shared decision-making change when their legal obligation to share decisions is altered.
He is taking a bricolage approach to examining the topic, including grounded theory, novel surveys and measure development, and case studies.
This will contribute to a limited research base surrounding the topic of clinical attitudes to shared decision-making.
