All parents want to do the very best they can for their children. They want to provide for them, and nurture them, and make good decisions on their behalf. When your child has a serious illness, the stakes seem so high, and it is natural to worry about the choices you are making. Courageous Parents Network believes in shared decision-making. You have the final say when it comes to your child’s treatment, but the burden of making decisions is not yours alone. In shared decision-making, the family and clinicians form a good working team, and a plan of care that you agree upon together.
