The purpose of the research is to examine how providers, patients, and caregivers handle uncertainty when they make health decisions.
Minor, foreseeable risks could include possible discomforts involve sharing my demographic information and remembering experiences with uncertain health and medical decisions. The study is anonymous to minimize the risk and discomfort. You can choose to share only those details that I feel comfortable and able to share. Non-participation or withdrawal from the study will not be penalized in any way.
No direct benefits to participants. The info will help researchers and developers better understand how providers and patients make health decisions and handle medical uncertainty and help them understand how to design better decision aids for health education and outreach.
