Sharing Difficult Decisions

We can help when you need to make a difficult healthcare decision. It can be hard to decide whether to have surgery, a test or continue treatment.

Shared decision-making is a communication skill that we support within our organization. We collaborate with you and help you come to an agreement about a healthcare decision. It is especially useful when no clear "best" treatment option exists.
