Clinical Decision Consultative Service

Overview

Finding the best ways to care for patients

The Division provides consultations to physicians who are uncertain as to the optimal management strategy for an individual patient. The service provides advice based on literature review and formal decision analysis explicitly weighing the risks and benefits of the alternatives and often the preferences of the specific patient.

Typical consultations involve complex clinical problems or unusual problems that involve difficult tradeoffs: patients with combinations of conditions that make traditional strategies of care problematic, the interpretation of conflicting information, and decisions that need to reflect strongly individual patient preferences.
