When you feel that you are ready to make a decision, have a look at the attached document entitled Initial Treatment Decision Matrix. It poses a series of questions, some of which may apply to your condition, and then offers a rationale as to why a particular form of treatment may be applicable to your situation or not.
Remember! Your choice of treatment should be grounded on three legs of rational decision making:
- You understand your condition fully.
- You understand the applicability of each form of treatment to your condition and the likely results.
- You appreciate the negative consequences of a treatment and are prepared to live with those consequences.
