Background: Shared decision making (SDM) is beneficial for interprofessional teams but also challenging to implement correctly. Oncology nurses are at the forefront of patients’ treatment and, therefore, one of the most essential components of the SDM process.

Objectives: The aim of this pilot study was to examine the effects of a one-hour web-based SDM education session on self-reported knowledge, attitudes, adaptability, and communication skills related to SDM among oncology nurses.

Methods: Using the ADDIE (analysis, design, development, implementation, and evaluation) theoretical framework, this study used a post-test–only, single-group, nonexperimental design.

Findings: This study provides preliminary evidence that a one-hour web-based SDM education session is acceptable and has positive effects on oncology nurses’ self-reported knowledge, attitudes, adaptability, and communication skills. More research is warranted to validate these findings.
