This month's highlights
A ‘decision navigator’ helps patients plan questions to ask at consultations and provides a summary of the consultation. Researchers from Scotland found that these professionals can help people share in treatment decisions and feel more confident about the decisions they make. This may be a relatively simple and inexpensive intervention to try in other areas, and could be tested using support staff, health professionals or fellow patients.
