Target-setting method justification
Trend data were evaluated for this objective but it was not possible to project a target because trend analysis did not identify any suitable targets. A percentage point improvement was calculated using Cohen's h effect size of 0.2. This method was used because the Healthy People 2030 Workgroup Subject Matter Experts believed the uptake of shared decision-making in the clinical encounter will continue to increase.
