The Impact of Physician Advice on Patient Decision Satisfaction

Although advice decreases decision evaluation overall (via decreasing decision ownership), there is a competing pathway whereby advice increases decision evaluation via increasing feelings of emotional support. Physicians should consider these competing pathways when deciding if/how to provide advice.
