About

This clinical trial studies how well the Decision Counseling Program works in increasing patient-physician shared decision making and participation in clinical trials for lung cancer patients. Decision aids help provide patients with information that may help them select a course of action related to their cancer care when more than one alternative is available. It also encourages shared decision making allowing patients and their providers to make health decisions together. Determining how patients make decisions about participating in a clinical trial may help doctors facilitate patient decision making and improve participation in lung cancer clinical trials.

Full description
