In this short piece, we discuss how a surgical nursing team identified shared decision making from the Person-Centred Nursing Framework (McCormack and  McCance, 2010) as an important influence for the care process within one team.

The Person-centred Nursing Framework articulates four constructs for how nurses can achieve person-centred care: Prerequisites; Care environment; Person-centred processes; and Expected outcomes.

The framework highlights the relationships between the constructs and provides an acknowledgment that the attributes of the nurse (prerequisites) and care environment need to be explored in order to achieve person-centred care (McCormack and McCance, 2010).
