Communication of risk

One of the core aspects of shared decision making (SDM) is the ability to effectively communicate risk. Risk communication is defined as ‘the open, two-way exchange of information and opinion about risk, leading to a better understanding of the risk in question, and promoting better (clinical) decisions about management’. This includes exploration of the level of health literacy, values, preferences and health beliefs of the patient, and tailoring the way information is conveyed to enhance understanding. Decision support tools play an important part in risk communication.

SDM and risk communication is best taught through role play.
