Decision Making

Purpose

The purpose of the Decision Making RIG is to advance inquiry of various aspects of decision-making within nursing science, provide a forum for disseminating knowledge relative to decision-making, promote opportunities for scholarly networking and mentoring and recognize significant contributions of nurses to decision science research.

The Decision Making RIG is fortunate to have many experienced and funded researchers who actively contribute to the body of decision-making knowledge. Our members embrace a rich diversity of theoretical and methodological approaches to the study of decision-making and choice behaviors, including: nurses’ clinical reasoning and decision-making, self-management decisions in heart failure, decision-making in care-giving for dementia, women’s decisions about menopause and depressive symptom management, cultural aspects of decision-making, and women’s decision-making about breast cancer treatment.

Who Should Join?

Nurses and nursing students with an interest in decision making science, clinical reasoning in nursing practice, shared provider-health care recipient decision making, or choice behaviors of health care recipients in all arenas of nursing practice.
