Abstract

ABSTRACT: Risks can be explained to patients in narratives, numbers, or graphs. All these methods depend upon description. However, decisions from description differ systematically from decisions about risks that are experienced through activities such as drawing cards from a deck. We have developed a dynamic graphic interface that provides a virtual experience of event probabilities, with potential applications in patient education and decision support.
