Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description:

This comprehensive reference delves into the complex process of medical decision making―both the nuts-and-bolts access and insurance issues that guide choices and the cognitive and affective factors that can make patients decide against their best interests. Wide-ranging coverage offers a robust evidence base for understanding decision making across the lifespan, among family members, in the context of evolving healthcare systems, and in the face of life-changing diagnosis. The section on applied decision making reviews the effectiveness of decision-making tools in healthcare, featuring real-world examples and guidelines for tailored communications with patients. Throughout, contributors spotlight the practical importance of the field and the pressing need to strengthen health decision-making skills on both sides of the clinician/client dyad.

 

Among the Handbook’s topics:

 

  • From laboratory to clinic and back: connecting neuroeconomic and clinical measures of decision-making dysfunctions.
  • Strategies to promote the maintenance of behavior change: moving from theoretical principles to practices.
  • Shared decision making and the patient-provider relationship.
  • Overcoming the many pitfalls of communicating risk.
  • Evidence-based medicine and decision-making policy.                                            
  • The internet, social media, and health decision making.

 

The Handbook of Health Decision Science will interest a wide span of professionals, among them health and clinical psychologists, behavioral researchers, health policymakers, and sociologists.
