Abstract: In the Netherlands, information provision about fertility preservation (FP) for young women with breast cancer is not sufficient. Since an increasing number of Dutch breast cancer patients will face this preference-sensitive decision each year, there is a clear need for improvement of information provision about FP. The overall aim of this thesis was therefore to (a) develop and (b) evaluate a Decision Aid (DA) about FP that is targeted to improve information provision and decision making about FP for young women with breast cancer. This thesis describes consecutively the development and evaluation of such a DA with values clarification exercise (VCE)
