Decisions made by physicians, patients, health policy makers and health insurers determine the quality of health care that is needed and provided for. This up-to-date, comprehensive overview of medical decision making reveals a rapidly expanding field. The book covers quantitative theoretical tools for modeling decisions, psychological research on how decisions are actually made, and applied research on how physician and patient decision making can be improved.
