Chapter 2 calibrates dominant models of doctor-patient decision-making against empirical research and ‘perspective pieces’ from health and relevant sociological and sociolinguistic lines of enquiry. Although essentially a literature review, this chapter offers an original critique of dominant approaches taken within healthcare research to the question of understanding what shared decision-making is and the extent to which it occurs.
