Table 1 Comments from clinicians

From: Design and implementation of a decision aid for juvenile idiopathic arthritis medication choices

If the goal was to get the patients more engaged and involved then it definitely did that. One family actually said to me, “wow you are actually showing me choices”
We did get a lot of really good feedback. We used the ones on the computer. Because it is a shared clinic space. The families did really like them.
The cards take a little longer as you discuss medications that you are not going to use at that visit. But the thing is that parents want to know, and they ought to know for it to be part of their decision.
This may be a culture change, opening up medication choices for discussion and being less directive.
