Shared Decision-Making about Prostate Cancer Screening

Description

Shared decision-making incorporates the patient’s values and preferences, in addition to physician recommendations and medical evidence in making decisions about patient care and treatment. This type of decision-making is especially helpful when there is no single “best” treatment option. Learn how this technique can help your decision-making for prostate cancer screening and treatment. In recognition of Prostate Cancer Awareness Month.
