Surgeons are expected to make treatment decisions that are based on the best available evidence. Moreover, they are called to recognise that important decisions should also be shared with patients. While dissemination of evidence-based surgery and communication of evidence to patients have been stressed for decades, not all surgeons actually use evidence-based surgery in daily practice.
The studies in this thesis were performed to explore the current dissemination of evidence-based care throughout surgical practice and the communication of evidence regarding treatment options to patients, in particular by using decision aids.
