Making decisions about your medical care can be overwhelming. It is important to make sure that you have heard all your options.
Decision aids help you to sit down with your doctor or health care provider and talk about what treatments and procedures may be best for you. They can help you, your family, and your doctors understand what is the best choice for you.
At the MaineHealth Cancer Resource Center we can help support you when you are making these important decisions.
