re: Online Resource Helps Patients Make Tough Decisions
Sounds like a great resource if you can just get senior and children patients to get involved. I mean the statistics speak for themselves, 41%, I believe that most senior who are not already [resent in one form or another will not be before their life span is up. If they have the enthusiasm to learn the Internet then they also possess the same enthusiasm for research regarding their medical condition. As for the seniors who are already using the Internet they know these resources or others are available through the Internet and are already utilizing them if they deem necessary.

Let's hope enough elderly patients actually see this online tool and use it. I know my father and father-in-law wouldn't.
