The decision aid is an online tool to select the most suitable treatment together with the patient. In a few steps, the decision aid informs the patient about diagnose, different treatment options and de pros and cons of each treatment option. The patient can then use sliders to indicate what he or she believes is important. The decision aid is available digitally and on paper.
Step 1: The patient uses the decision aid (at home or in the clinic) prior to the decision moment.
Step 2: The outcome of the decision aid is automatically sent to the doctor after it is completed.
Step 3: During the consultation, the physician and patient discuss the outcome of the decision aid and make a decision in mutual agreement.
The PATIENT+ foundation develops decision aids for common medical diagnoses. Our decisions aids are available at our platform www.decisionaid.info. PATIENT+ adapts, integrates and optimizes decisions aids based on the needs of each individual health care facility.
