Evidence-informed decision aids for clinical trial participation: a methodological investigation of core components and outcome measures

Summary

The overall aim of this fellowship project is to generate and disseminate new methodological knowledge relating to innovations in decision support for trial participation.  Following on from the Decision Aids in Randomised Trials (DART) project, this work aims to inform the design and assessment of trial participation decision aids by answering the following research questions:

  1. What are the potential implications of including patient stories in trial decision aids?
  2. What are effective methods for presenting probabilistic trial information within trial decision aids?
  3. Which outcomes should be considered ‘core’ for the evaluation of trial decision aids?
