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.
