New efforts ease patient decision-making

Philadelphia Inquirer, June 8, 2009
While some researchers have been studying decisions for decades, the tools they have developed may be available only to patients in clinical trials. It's still rare for patients to get decision support as a routine part of care, and giving patients the education they need to fully understand their cancers, possible treatments, and themselves is unrealistic, experts say. Instead, decision experts provide questionnaires and reports that help patients evaluate priorities and treatments. Some include video of patients discussing their experiences.
