Health Decision Guides

Harvard Health Decision Guides created by the Faculty of the Harvard Medical School take users through a personalized, interactive approach to 140 medical issues that people face every day. The Guides cover the most common symptoms in adults and children and a variety of abnormal laboratory test results. Through a series of questions and answers, users learn how doctors think about medical problems and what action to take.

To access sample guides for a demonstration, click on any of the four areas to the right: Adults, Men, Women, or Children, and view a few selected, highlighted sample guides on each page. Read through the questions and click on the highlighted choices under each question to learn how the guides work.
