However, the relative effectiveness of patient-focused or encounter-based DAs on SDM and patient outcomes is still largely unknown. In meetings to determine stroke prevention strategies in patients with atrial fibrillation, we want to quantify the comparative effects of two DA's on SDM discovered. In a 2 cluster randomized multi-center study at six locations, the study seeks to recruit 1200 adult patients with non-valvular AF who qualify for anticoagulation therapy, as well as their physicians who implement stroke prevention policies. Two DA's were designed as interactive, non-linear devices: a patient decision aid could be used by patients before the meeting, and a clinician decision aid should be used by clinicians with their patients during the encounter. Our findings will help to determine future SDM interventions to improve patients' AF outcomes and stroke prevention efforts.
