The SHARE Approach for IVF doctors

Infertility treatment is elective, and the patient has a very important role to play in deciding what treatment to take and when. There are lots of options, and doctors need to partner with their patients so that they can factor in their personal preferences when crafting a treatment plan for them.

The SHARE Approach is a simple five-step process for shared decision making that includes exploring and comparing the benefits, harms, and risks of each option through meaningful dialogue about what matters most to the patient.

Step 1: Seek your patient's participation.
Step 2: Help your patient explore and compare treatment options.
Step 3: Assess your patient's values and preferences.
Step 4: Reach a decision with your patient.
Step 5: Evaluate your patient's decision.
