The presentation will include work on the implementation of shared decision-making (SDM) in German cancer care, as well as first results from current work in the US. Isabelle will depict the role of multidisciplinary team meetings (tumor boards) in decision-making processes in a German comprehensive cancer center and display views and needs of the different stakeholders regarding SDM. Furthermore, she will present the results of a recent scoping review on the role of organizational- and system-level characteristics in the implementation of SDM in routine care. Finally, she will report on preliminary results from an interview study on the relevance of the characteristics identified in the scoping review for cancer care in the US.
