The MMR (measles-mumps-rubella) vaccine decision aid. An online tool for parents.

This study was the first published study to apply decision aids in the child vaccination arena. The pilot study tested the effects of an online decision aid for parents concerned about the safety of the MMR vaccine. The decision aid provided evidence based information on the risks and benefits of MMR vaccination and the diseases it prevents via a 21 screen online tool. The study showed a significant positive shift in attitudes to MMR vaccination. Further results have been published. A collaboration with Leeds University (UK) is underway.
