shared decision making

The active involvement of patients and carers and significant others in the UK in choosing management options—e.g., eliciting utilities and preferences by discussion, through interactive CDs, etc.

• Are more confident in their choice, reducing the likelihood of a lawsuit; and
• Often choose less invasive (i.e., less expensive) procedures.
