About MDM Policy & Practice
Medical Decision Making Policy & Practice (MDM P&P) is an open access journal that offers rigorous and systematic applications of decision science that are designed to improve the health and clinical care of individuals and to assist with health-policy development. MDM P&P focuses on the application of current theories, methods, and approaches from a variety of disciplines to important problems facing clinical and health policy decision-makers, including patients, providers, producers, and payers.
MDM P&P focuses on important topics such as:
- Optimal strategies for patient care and policy decision making for specific health conditions
- Approaches to improving individual and group medical decision-making processes
- Shared decision making and patient decision support
- Decision and cost-effectiveness analyses
- Health technology assessment
- Examples of teaching decision making
We are most interested in manuscripts that are exemplary applications of standard methods to important problems.
