Help with making complex medical decisions
Medical decisions can be complex. Sometimes you will need to meet with different kinds of doctors. You may need to choose from several treatment options with different benefits and burdens. You may also have family members or loved ones with different opinions about which treatments are best for you. A shared decision making consult helps you weigh medical information in light of your personal values and beliefs.
The Shared Decision Making Service can help with decisions like these:
- Should this treatment be started – what are the benefits and burdens?
- Should this treatment be stopped – is it hurting more than helping?
- Who may speak for a patient who cannot speak for him/herself?
- Are the patient’s values and beliefs being respected?
