Decision Aids

SHARE-IT Decision Aids allow you to share and discuss the evidence directly with your patients.

This interactive tool for shared-decision making is designed to help you meet your patients' needs by:

  • Exploring what outcomes they wish to discuss
  • Communicating the benefits and harms of each alternative, as well as their (un)certainty
  • Discussing practical consequences associated with each alternative

This decision aid does not replace clinical judgment. Adapt it to the context as needed and use your own communication style.
