Unverified Answer

What does decision support tool usually treat?

Add answer

Patients frequently encounter decisional aids during medical care. However, most people who need them ignore or disregard them. This might reflect either that decisional aids are not helpful or that the help they provide is not always clear, concise, or effective. Clinicians might want to educate themselves about the tools they can help patients use, and about the effectiveness or drawbacks of each choice. As well as providing advice about the patient's preferences, clinicians can role-play the patient while discussing the decision aid and helping the patient choose the most effective option for him or her.
