About this study
We are doing a study to assess the impact of including patients in making decision regarding their own medical care in the emergency department. We will randomly assign them to either receive a decision aid or usual care. In doing this, we aim to increase patient satisfaction and safely decrease medical cost.
Participant eligibility includes age, gender, type and stage of disease, and previous treatments or health concerns. Guidelines differ from study to study, and identify who can or cannot participate. There is no guarantee that every individual who qualifies and wants to participate in a trial will be enrolled. Contact the study team to discuss study eligibility and potential participation.
- Adults with a primary complaint of chest pain.
- Treating clinician's next consideration is observation unit admission for cardiac stress testing.
- Initial cardiac troponin T value >99th percentile (>0.01ng/mL)
- History of coronary artery disease
- coronary revascularization procedure within the previous 30 days
- cocaine use within 72 hours by the clinician's initial history
- patient cannot read English or have, in their clinician's judgment, major learning barriers, such as visual or hearing impairment or dementia that would compromise their ability to give written informed consent (or use the decision aid)
