As well as what they may want from the intervention, their goals and motivation. This includes sharing of information, shared deliberation, and shared decision making and focuses on developing a partnership to achieve commonly agreed goals. This includes documenting patient preferences, beliefs, and values, as well as involvement in care and treatment decision-making in patient records.

This may occur through a developed action plan by health professional(s) and woman, or shared decision making in setting goals with woman. Also includes collaborating on issues such as care pathway.
