Adults in the US make an estimated 35,000 decisions a day. Day-to-day decisions are important for people living with inflammatory bowel disease or other chronic diseases, as they navigate the complexity of managing a disease while maintaining a meaningful life.
Health care decisions should be made during collaborative conversations between patients and their health care providers (HCPs) because research shows that using a shared decision-making approach may improve health outcomes and quality of life. Unfortunately, less than half of patients feel that their HCPs understand their personal health goals and/or work with them as a team.
