Being familiar with your treatment options can help you engage with your physician in a meaningful discussion about these options. The most reliable sources of information discussing treatment options are evidence reports that synthesize the research findings from multiple studies. These reports utilize rigorous methods to control for the quality of the evidence included in the reports, and for various sources of bias inherent in individual research studies. These evidence reports are utilized in developing clinical practice guidelines that physicians use to make clinical decisions. There are clear and comprehensible summaries of these reports developed specifically for patients. You can search for these clicking on the links below.
