Shared decision-making visits improved comfort with lung cancer screening decisions

from Oncology Nurse Advisor

A shared decision-making visit was associated with better understanding of the eligibility, harms and benefits in patients considering lung cancer screening with low-dose CT, according to a study published in Chest. "We found a generally poor level of understanding of the eligibility criteria, benefits and harms of screening upon entry into the program. This understanding improved substantially after the visit at the time of the decision about whether or not to proceed with screening. Patients generally felt the messages were delivered at an appropriate level and felt more comfortable about their decision after the visit," said lead investigator Peter J. Mazzone, M.D., MPH, in a news release. more
