Patient Decision Aid for the Treatment of Lentigo Maligna
The Decision Aid for Lentigo Maligna was developed by members of the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery with iterative feedback from patients. It contains evidence-based information regarding LM and various treatment modalities, including surgery, imiquimod 5%, radiation, as well as active surveillance. Treatment-specific information includes treatment efficacy, advantages and adverse effects, expected follow up, and estimated associated costs. The “things I might consider in my decision” section of the decision aid contains questions regarding lifestyle, comorbidities, social factors, and disease-related concerns.
