Shared decision-making (SDM) is a joint process in which a person and healthcare professional work together to reach decisions about care. The Improving uptake of Fracture Prevention drug treatments (iFraP) study developed a prototype theoretically-informed intervention consisting of a computerised decision aid (DA) and Fracture Liaison Service (FLS) clinician training package to improve SDM about osteoporosis medicines. This abstract focuses on the early prototype iFraP in-practice testing phase that explored perceived acceptability of iFraP by those using it, barriers to, and facilitators of, implementation of the prototype iFraP in practice, and necessary changes required ahead of a full-scale randomised controlled trial (RCT).
