Consumer Tool for Medical Decision-Making

The Informed Medical Decisions Foundation has created a worksheet titled “I Wish I Had Asked That” (PDF) for patients to use during medical appointments when they are faced with making decisions among treatment or testing options.  This is a very useful tool for engaging the patient and provider in a conversation about health concerns and next steps. We encourage patients and family members to use them during appointments and we encourage medical providers to make these available to patients, especially when they are facing a decision about their care.
