Are you making a tough health decision? Try working through the Ottawa Personal Decision Guide (OPDG).

The OPDG is designed to help you think through any health-related decision. It will help you identify your decision making needs, plan the next steps, track progress, and share your views about the decision. Learn more about why Shared Decision Making is important here.
