A model for implementing cancer prevention Shared Decision Making Tools (SDMTs) within the workflow
of a primary care setting is presented. The SDMTs are used in a web-based Clinical Decision Support
System that is integrated with the electronic health record and deployed automatically for high-risk
patients at the point of care. The focus of the SDMTs is to help patients and providers make evidence-based
and patient-centered decisions about cancer screening and prevention.

Learning Objective 1: Implement a web-based Clinical Decision Support System with integrated Shared Decision Making Tools for cancer prevention in primary care electronic health record systems.

Learning Objective 2: Optimize primary care clinic workflows using Clinical Decision Support Systems and Shared Decision Making Tools focused on primary and secondary cancer prevention.
