Making treatment decisions

Review

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, using decision aids,

attending support groups, and comparing benefits

and downsides may help you decide which

treatment is best for you.
