What is the best initial treatment for Crohn's Disease? [TranslationAL]

What is the best iniitial treatment for Crohn's Disease? Glyn Elwyn and colleagues have developed an Option Grid for this decision. An Option Grid is a paper-based decision aid designed to be used by doctor and patient during a 'shared decision making' clinical consultation.

In contrast, an Annalisa is an online decision support tool designed to be used by a person in their home as preparation for a clinical consultation - if they choose to arrrange one.

This fundamental difference in philosophy and purpose means that an Option Grid differs from an Annalisa in several major ways. To see how they compare and see the Option Grid re-framed as an Annalsa click here.
