Isn’t shared decision making more than “informed consent?” I thought that this was referring more to ensuring that providers understand the full scope of options they might have when confronted with a medical decision.

To moderator – perhaps some guidance around standardizing or creating guidelines for content review of decision aids. There are several organizations which produce decision aids intended to help people make informed decisions about their medical conditions. It is likely difficult for a consumer to know the level of quality of the information and/ or content of the decision aid.

Hi lee jarm. Welcome and thanks for commenting. royjbussewitz appears to have identified informed consent as one issue for government to focus on in helping a provider communicate a patient’s treatment choices with other relevant providers. Are there other ways that you think the government could help facilitate this goal?

Thank you for your comment, lee jarm. Educating patients through health IT is an important part of ONC’s plan going forward. You can read more about what ONC has already done and also comment on what they should do in the future, here.
