Abstract: Clinically significant decisional conflict (CSDC) leads to poor patient outcomes. We sought to identify the prevalence of CSDC in primary care using the Decisional Conflict Scale (score ≥ 25/100) in five datasets of patients who consulted in primary care. We identified its risk factors using logistic regression analysis. Selection of variables was based on a review of the literature and on their availability in the datasets. The prevalence of CSDC in primary care varied between 10% and 31% depending on the dataset, a variation that could reflect the different types of decisions addressed. Overall, CSDC was more prevalent in males, people aged 45 and over and people living alone. Healthcare professionals should be trained in screening for CSDC in order to reduce poor patient outcomes.
