The Organizing Committee is delighted to invite you to the 10th International Shared Decision Making Conference (ISDM 2019), taking place from July 7-10 2019 in Quebec City, Canada.


Quebec City was founded 411 years ago and is considered the birthplace of French culture in North America. The historic Old City has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The warm Québécois authenticity and the city’s perfect mix of European charm and North American magnetism are irresistible.


The conference will take place at Université Laval, North America’s first French-language university.


This year the theme of the conference is Patient-Oriented Shared Decision Making Research. This conference is a unique chance to discuss best strategies for involving patients in shared decision making research so that it better reflects their knowledge, priorities, and needs.


We will be hearing from world-renown speakers. We are pleased to introduce our 3 keynote speakers:


Carrie Bourassa




RN PhD(c)

Victor M.




In addition, we will host a dynamic panel discussion in patient-oriented research. Here are our 4 invited experts:
