Decision Assist

Tools to help you make the right decisions

DecisionAssist tools can help you make important decisions about your healthcare options. These decisions include whether to have a particular surgery, proceed with a test, take certain medications, or use other healthcare services.

The tools allow you to select from a list of the most common factors to consider in making your decision, so that you can weigh and learn more about the factors that are most important to you. The tools also provide key points, questions to ask your doctor, recommended reading, and alternative options.
