Medical Decision Making (MDM) offers rigorous and systematic approaches to decision making that are designed to improve the health and clinical care of individuals and to assist with health policy development. Published eight times a year, the Journal presents theoretical, statistical, and modeling techniques and methods from a variety of disciplines including decision psychology, health economics, clinical epidemiology, and evidence synthesis. MDM promotes understanding of human decision-making processes so that individuals can make more informed and satisfying choices regarding their health.

Medical Decision Making focuses on important topics such as:

  • Optimal strategies for patient care and policy decision making
  • Understanding individual and group decision-making processes
  • Outcomes of decisions, their measurement, and valuation
  • Risk communication, risk attitudes, and judgment
  • Methods to teach about and improve actual decisions
  • Methods for technology assessment, literature synthesis, comparative effectiveness research and evidence-based decision making.
