Skills and Strategies for Healthcare Decision-Making with Children


Being a decision-maker for your own healthcare is important. Families and healthcare providers want
children to become good decision-makers. For some children this takes more support, practice, and
some special tools. Learning this skill should begin in childhood and continue into adulthood. This
guide and its resources help families and healthcare providers support children to learn the skills
they need. This resource was created in partnership with Jennifer Banna, former URLEND family trainee and
current Montana Family to Family Health Information Center Coordinator
