Life experiences shape the decisions we make every day. No one has the same experiences or makes decisions the same way. Deciding which screening option to choose can be confusing, especially when there is no evidence to prove one method is best. Like many health topics today, colorectal cancer screening can be complex and confusing. Shared decision making can help you make the decision that is best for you.

  • Helps you make a decision when there is no evidence that one choice is best

  • Helps you weigh the pros and cons of each option
  • Takes into consideration your unique experiences and values
  • Gives you skills, tools and permission to engage your healthcare provider
