Louise Russell is Co-Editor of special supplement for Medical Decision Making

This special supplement to the journal Medical Decision Making, edited by Brian Zikmund-Fisher, Louise Russell, and Michael Pignone, is devoted to articles about the National Survey of Medical Decision Making. The survey interviewed a sample of more than 3000 U.S. adults aged 40 and older about their experience with nine common medical decisions: screening for colorectal cancer, breast cancer, and prostate cancer; prescription medications for high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and depression; and surgery for knee or hip replacement, cataracts, and lower back pain. Survey questions probed how informed patients were about the decisions they faced, the sources of information they used, and how actively they had participated, and wanted to participate, in the decisions [Special Supplement to Medical Decision Making, September/October 2010; 30 (5 suppl)].
