Making treatment decisions
• 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
opinion, using decision aids,
attending support groups, and comparing benefits
and downsides may help you decide which
treatment is best for you.
