What is important to you about your treatment?
I’m an individual and what works for one person wouldn’t work for another.
It’s helpful having ideas of what I need to consider in making treatment decisions [such as] fitting my medication in with my lifestyle.
Any treatment decision involves weighing up the likely benefits of the treatment (pros) with the side effects, risks and other possible negative impacts of the treatment (cons) .
To help you make your own decision, we have provided the following interactive exercises where you can go through the pros and cons of the options and rate how important these are to you. There are also examples of how some other people with BPII viewed the pros and cons of the options available.
There are no right or wrong answers. Your personal values and preferences should guide you when rating the importance of the pros and cons of each option.
Each pro or con statement has three options describing how important you consider the issue to be. By selecting one of the options you can indicate how important each issue is to you.
|Selecting||“Very important”||Means that the issue is a very big concern to you.|
|Selecting||“Somewhat important”||Means that the issue is a small concern to you.|
|Selecting||“Not important”||Means that the issue is not a concern to you.|
