Shared Decisions in Emotionally Difficult Situations

Tatiana Barakshina, UIC, USA
Medical consumer decisions-making process is analyzed. A high, moderate and low gradation of “emotionally difficult decisions” is introduced. Findings on autonomous, shared and externally made decisions are summarized. External decision mode is preferred for the highest extreme of emotional difficulty; in this work, we propose that preferences shift toward autonomous and shared decisions under moderate and low emotional difficulty.
