In this narrative review, we locate within the tradition of great diagnosticians in internal medicine, a fundamental development in patient-centered care: shared decision making (SDM). In this way, we present SDM as a core component of the clinical method, one in which diagnosis of the situation and of the actions that resolve it is essential toward the practice of evidence-based medicine.
