IHBR PRIMARY OBJECTIVES:
Facilitate doctor-patient communication
Advocate for the use of absolute risks
Develop a straight-forward, universal decision aid
This book considers several common and important situations where faulty decision-making makes overtreatment a serious risk. Clear, fair, referenced, and useful information is provided. And a powerful intuitive technique is introduced which allows patient and doctor to talk as equals as they work together in the exam room.
