Criteria for user acceptability are used to derive objectives for the design of decision support systems in medicine. We argue that decision making methods of an expert differ from those of the novice only in quality but not in kind. Points of similarity between experts and novices provide the basis for knowledge transportability. Points of difference help identify the knowledge to be transported. Implications of this fact for the design of a decision support system are discussed. An example of such a system for family physicians is presented.
