Decision aids are increasingly used in health care, for example to make decisions together with a doctor or to make an informed decision yourself. There is a lot of evidence for the positive effects of decision aids. However, there is also increasing evidence that decision aids are not optimally used by people from vulnerable groups, such as the elderly, people with a migration background, people with low health literacy and/or low numeracy.

In this symposium we will discuss the various components of decision aids and what we know from both scientific research and practice. What makes it difficult to use a decision aid and what could be done better for people from vulnerable groups? What are good examples? Where are the bottlenecks?

This symposium is sponsored by KWF, APH Quality of Care and NeFCA. Participation in this symposium is therefore free, but registration is required (limited number of places available).
