Patients’ preferences are often misinterpreted or ignored in treatment decisions, leading to a “silent misdiagnosis” that is damaging to both doctors and patients. Evidence also shows that patients often choose different treatments after they become better informed about the risks and benefits. Better diagnosis of patients’ preferences is not only the right ethical thing to do but it may also reduce the cost of healthcare.
