Sharing Clinical Decisions by Discussing Evidence with Patients



David Price, MD, FAAFP

Spring 2005 - Volume 9 Number 2

https://doi.org/10.7812/TPP/05-006

Introduction

Our patients receive skillfully presented medical information from multiple sources other than us--in particular, from direct-to-consumer pharmaceutical advertising that pervades television, radio, print media, and the Internet. At the same time, clinicians cannot easily keep pace with the volume of new medical information available from studies--and the quality of studies may vary greatly. We clinicians must therefore differentiate high-quality from less-than-high-quality evidence and become skilled in communicating this difference to patients to help address their concerns.
