With all of the questions swirling around the issue of prostate cancer screening, there has never been a greater need for shared decision-making between physicians and their patients.
To set the scene for an informed physician-patient encounter, the Foundation for Informed Medical Decision Making - through its partner Health Dialog - now offers free online access to its excellent Shared Decision Making program, "Is a PSA Test Right For You?"
Disclosures: The Foundation funds my work on the HealthNewsReview.org project. And I worked for that Foundation throughout the 90s, and produced the original version of this prostate cancer decision aid 15 years ago.
The Foundation has been urged to make this program available to the general public for years. I'd be interested in hearing any reactions after you view it.
