More consumer health tools from AHRQ

The Agency for Healthcare Research & Quality has created a website to help people make better treatment choices. Part of the Effective Healthcare Program, one section, Explore Your Treatment Options,  includes a ” Your Health Priorities Tool” that lets people  prioritize activities in their daily life and rate what’s important to them, so that they & their doctor can more easily find a treatment that fits their goals & lifestyle.

There’s also information for both clinicians and consumers on a variety of topics. Be warned though:  Although the consumer version is called “plain language”, it’s still written at a relatively high reading level (up to 15, where you might expect more of a 7th grade level or lower).
