Patient decision-making in the context of a healthcare system

Michael Arnold Mages, Catherine Kennedy, and Joli Holmes

Economies of power between clinicians and patients in healthcare contexts can be fraught with challenges. While the outcomes of any healthcare decision are paramount to the patient, it is often difficult to determine what a “good” deliberative decision-making process looks like without knowing the outcomes. Further, patients are subject to a wide variety of influences.

In this paper, the authors will present a system map of those influences and discuss the impact of those influences on several cases drawn from autoethnographic investigation.
