In quality health care, both shared decision malting (SDM) and evidence-based practice are important contributing approaches. Despite the interdependence of these approaches, they have largely evolved in parallel and realization of their interconnectedness has typi­cally been absent or implied, until recently (Hoffmann et al., 2014a). This chapter will examine the connection between the two approaches and overview some of the strategies to further this connection.
