Webinar: How to Develop Inclusive Health Decision Aids

When:  May 31, 2023 from 09:00 AM to 10:00 AM (PT)
Webinar Description:

Making health decisions can be a complicated and personal process. Decision aids can help patients and their caregivers understand their options and empower them to have productive conversations with their doctors. Using a human-centered design process, CommunicateHealth has created decision aids to facilitate informed decisions on topics like colorectal cancer screening preferences and managing ALS. In this presentation, we’ll share lessons learned — including best practices for designing, building, and testing decision aids. We’ll also discuss how inclusive, accessible decision aids support shared decision-making between patients and doctors — and how these tools address health literacy and advance health equity.


By the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:

- Describe how health decision aids can support health literacy and health equity
- Set a process for developing and testing health decision aids for a variety of audiences
- Identify best practices in designing clear, inclusive, and accessible health decision aids that support the decisional balance of patients and their caregivers
