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:
- Identify decision points that meet the specific priority needs identified jointly by the patient, physician, and educator.
- Identify decisional needs based on 1. for the patient in regard to asthma management.
- 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.
