Healthcare has increasingly focused on patient engagement and shared decision-making. Decision aids can promote engagement and shared decision making by providing patients and their providers with care options and outcomes. This article discusses decision aids for surgical oncology patients. Topics include: short-term risk prediction following surgery, long-term risk prediction of survival and recurrence, the combination of short- and long-term risk prediction to help guide treatment choice, and decision aid usability, transparency, and accessibility.
