Consumers in Health Care: Creating Decision-Support Tools That Work - CHCF.org: "In response to the trend of increasing consumer involvement in health care decision making, Consumers in Health Care: Creating Decision-Support Tools That Work examines the various forms and functions of tools available to help consumers make more informed choices. It summarizes evidence regarding the effectiveness of these tools, and offers possible strategies for overcoming limitations to their widespread use."
In the past, patients would expect doctors to make these decisions for them. Times are changing, and since they are often being forced to make these decisions for themselves, decision-support tools are going to become increasingly important. Patients with similar problems can also play a key role , by forming online communities to help each other in this process.
