Content By: Fisher, A., Sharpe, L., Anderson, J., Manicavasagar, V., & Juraskova, I. (2018). Development and pilot of a decision-aid for patients with bipolar II disorder and their families making decisions about treatment options to prevent relapse. PLOS ONE, 13(7): e0200490. https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0200490

Course Description: Treatment decisions for bipolar II disorder are multi-faceted and should take into account patient preferences along with the risks and benefits of each treatment protocol. The accompanying pilot study evaluated a decision aid booklet designed to summarize information about available treatments for bipolar II disorder and to help patients make informed decisions regarding their desired treatment. Quantitative and qualitative analyses indicated that patients and their families found the decision aid to be an informative, balanced, helpful, and easy to use addition to the treatment planning process. A randomized controlled trial is recommended to determine the efficacy of the decision aid booklet for a larger population of patients and their families.
