    This study explored clinician perceptions of women's participation in decision-making about antiemetic treatments during pregnancy, and the suitability of the five Choosing Wisely questions to increase women's involvement. The qualitative interpretive descriptive design used semi-structured interviews to capture data. Participants were six obstetricians and six midwives experienced in providing care for pregnant women seeking support for nausea and vomiting at a single private, obstetrician-led maternity health service in Australia. Thematic analysis revealed four themes that captured clinician perspectives about women's participation in decision-making about antiemetic treatments: (i) information gathering; (ii) developing an understanding; (iii) using knowledge; and (iv) making decisions. Clinician attitudes and perspectives, as well as their self-reported styles of communication and negotiation, influenced how they engaged with women during decision-making. While unfamiliar with the five Choosing Wisely questions, almost all participants considered them potentially useful, but for other clinicians. Strategies to actively involve women in decision-making about antiemetics were inconsistently used. The five Choosing Wisely questions may provide a useful tool for clinicians, but further research is needed to better understand women's perspectives and clinician-related barriers to shared decision-making. © 2022 John Wiley & Sons Australia, Ltd.
