The author reflects on the significance of shared decision making (ISDM) on child care. She stresses that ISDM requires at least two participants, where both parties must take the initiative and share needed data. She adds that its critical step is the quality and completeness of the data given by medical personnel and entailed parents to take part in giving health care to children.
