Review

• Shared decision-making is a process in which you

and your doctors plan treatment together.

• Asking your doctors questions is vital to getting the

information you need to make informed decisions.

• Getting a 2

nd

opinion, attending support groups,

and comparing benefits and downsides may help

you decide which treatment is best for you.
