Research design

The patient decision aid will be implemented in specific academic centers and hospitals in and and around the region of Amsterdam. We will evaluate the implementation and use of the decision aid by sending out questionnaires to patients, their partners and health care professionals. To evaluate the effectiveness, we will compare two groups of patients: patients who received the usual information from their treating health care professional (control group), and a group who additionally received the patient decision aid (intervention group). We will collect data on knowledge, satisfaction, decisional conflict and quality of life, by sending out four questionnaires to patients and one questionnaire to their partners. The intervention group will also get asked to evaluate the use of the decision aid.
