The history of Medical Decision Making has strong parallels with the history of Quality of Care. I would like to discuss some of these, with a particular emphasis on the role of patient preferences and patient-centeredness. I will illustrate how SMDM as a Society is in continuous search for quality, not only in research (and the impact of its results on health care), but also in the Society’s functioning as a professional home for our members.
