FOCUS GROUPS AND BRCT USE IN SHARED DECISION MAKINGouble click me.

We conducted three focus groups to determine the utility of BRCTs in shared decision making.  The results of these groups demonstrated that:

 

  • Patients value shared decision making

  • Many people question the validity of medical information that is provided by the press and pharmaceutical manufacturers.

  • BRCTs are easy for patients to understand and clarify health information

  • BRCTs can lead to a reduction in overtreatment.
