Surgical Patients Not Getting Information on Alternatives, Wall Street Journal #nurseup #nursefriendly

Surgical Patients Not Getting Information on Alternatives, Wall Street Journal #nurseup #nursefriendly:"It’s awfully hard for patients to participate in decisions about their medical care if they don’t know all their options. But that’s exactly what seems to be happening, at least with many Medicare patients who received a stent procedure for coronary disease or prostate surgery for cancer, according to a new study. The research, published online by the Journal of General Internal Medicine, surveyed 685 patients who had prostate-cancer surgery and 472 who had stents for coronary disease about their decision-making process."
