Cochrane Consumers and Communication's latest Evidence Bulletin explores the critical issues around decision aids for people facing health treatment or screening decisions and assesses what this means for healthcare in Victoria, Australia. What are the implications from both a policy making and clinical perspective?
This Evidence Bulletin is based on the 2017 update, by Dawn Stacey and colleagues, of a landmark Cochrane Review about decision aids. The 2017 update brought the evidence up-to-date and incorporated new trials as well as a new subgroup analysis.
Previous Evidence Bulletins are available on our website.
