What are Patient Decision Aids?

Nov 9, 2016, 15:42 PM

Patient decision aids are tools that help patients, care-givers and families become involved in decision making around difficult health care issues. They are designed to complement, rather than replace, the advice given by a health care practitioner. 

In partnership with the the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute, we have identified and assessed the quality of various patient decision aids available online and present these to you with our 5-star rating.
