Summary of "Towards a decision aid for self-tests: Users' experiences in The Netherlands."

Self-tests enable the identification of (risk factors for) diseases and are carried out on the user's initiative without medical indication or advice and often unaided by a health professional. They are frequently used, and their availability and usage are expected to grow. Self-testing has both advantages and disadvantages. Making a well-informed decision about whether to self-test and which self-test to use is of major importance.
