The purpose of this chapter is to summarize what clinicians should know about patient decision aids (PDAs) and to identify areas where further studies are needed. PDAs present evidence in user-friendly formats to help patients understand their treatment, screening, or prevention options, make specific, deliberative choices, and participate in decision making. PDAs are used in preparation for the consultation or during the consultation using paper based booklets, video-cassettes, DVDs, and internet-based materials. When PDAs are used (1) patients have improved decision quality and decision making processes, (2) patients and clinicians have more engaged interactions, (3) patients do not experience a change in their health outcomes and they may or may not change their chosen option, and (4) the impact on the health care system is not yet established. There are inventories of publicly available PDAs.
