Patients' expectations of the benefits and harms of treatment
Health Report ABC Radio, 9 February 2015. Many people like to be involved in the decision making process with their doctor about suggested treatments or tests. Making a rational choice depends on information, available evidence, but also how the patient perceives the balance of benefits versus harms. Unrealistic expectations of benefits or harms can influence a person’s decision making in their medical treatment. Prof. T. Hoffmann and Prof. C. Del Mar published a paper on this topic in JAMA and was interviewed by Dr Swan from the Health Report on ABC Radio on this topic.
