Shared decision making can guide patients facing difficult treatment decisions, with a trade-off between risks and benefits, taking patient goals and preferences into account. The Outcome Prioritization Tool (OPT) was developed to facilitate the discussion of goals and preferences with older patients in an encompassing, non-disease-specific way. The OPT is used in both primary and secondary healthcare for several treatment decisions, but data regarding the tool are limited. A concise review yielded two developmental articles, four articles describing three studies using the OPT, and one study protocol. All studies were performed among older patients. In those studies, the majority of patients ranked maintaining independence as most important. The tool has been shown to be feasible for both patients and healthcare providers.
