What are patient decision aids?
Patient decision aids are tools to help people be involved in healthcare decisions. They are written resources or videos for use online or in person. People who use them learn about their options, think about what matters most to them, and choose a preferred option that fits best for their situation. Many clinical practice guidelines recommend patient decision aids.
Our Mission
  • To explore better ways to help patients make healthcare decisions that may have:
    • multiple options;
    • uncertain outcomes;
    • benefits and harms that people value differently.
  • To explore better ways to help healthcare professionals support patients making health-related decisions.
