In a healthcare environment that is trying to achieve better clinical outcomes and patient satisfaction, shared decision-making is a well-established concept that is gaining more interest. Multiple sclerosis is a preference-sensitive condition and provides the opportunity to implement decision AIDS at various decision points in the disease process. Literature about patient education and outcomes of shared decision AIDS in multiple sclerosis has been growing over the last decade. In this topical review, we present an overview of the current literature on shared decision-making in multiple sclerosis. While limitations to the generalizability and applicability of decision AIDS exist, there is evidence that decision AIDS and shared decision-making can be valuable tools in the clinical care of multiple sclerosis patients.
