Knowledge and Evaluation Research Unit

The research engine supporting the Mayo Clinic Shared Decision Making National Resource Center


Use the navigation bar at the top of the page to explore the decision aids we have developed and tested as part of our Wiser Choices Program.

Remember: These tools have been developed to be used by patients and clinicians together in a clinical encounter.  They are not designed for independent use by patients (those would have to be much more comprehensive, have loads of legal disclaimers, etc).

In each page we include, when available, links to papers describing the development process, videos on how to use the tools, the tools for free download, and papers describing the protocol of evaluation and results.

This work has been funded by foundations and federal grants. The KER UNIT does not receive funding from for profit healthcare, pharmaceutical and device companies.
