Shared Decision Tools

Alberta Asthma Centre is partnering with Dr. Louis Phillipe Boulet to develop a shared decision aid to help patients and their caregivers make evidence-based, informed decisions about their asthma management that is congruent with their values. The aid would reduce conflict and uncertainty about decision making and: 

  1. Identify decision points that meet the specific priority needs identified jointly by the patient, physician, and educator.
  2. Identify decisional needs based on 1. for the patient in regard to asthma management.
  3. Develop and test a prototype of a decision support aid for the management of asthma, specific to identified decisional needs in 2. and evaluate the acceptability of the shared-decision aid and motivation of participants to use the aid.
