Decide for Yourself How to Manage Your Chronic Spontaneous Urticaria (CSU)/Chronic Idiopathic Urticaria (CIU)

At GAAPP we believe that a patient should be able to participate in all the decisions regarding their treatment and how their Chronic Spontaneus Urticaria is managed. A disease management plan that also takes into account your values, lifestyle, and the impact on your family budget. That is why we have created the Urticaria Shared Decision Making Aid.

How frequently is your urticaria management plan evaluated?

Would you like to make decisions regarding your condition together with your physician?

We invite you to assess your plan and take the first step towards taking control of your Urticaria with our free shared decision making aid:

How does the Urticaria Shared Decision Making Aid work:

Working together to select the best treatment for you

During several minutes, the decision aid will ask questions about your experience and preferences so you can sort out your options for treatment. ​

The best choice is going to be the choice you feel most comfortable with. And one that you will be able to follow without regret. Not choosing to start a treatment at this time is also a choice—these treatments can be started in the future as well.

We respect your privacy:

We encourage you to create an account to save your progress and results of the Shared Decision-Making Aid for future reference. We know some individuals may not want to create an account. In that case, you can use the Shared Decision-Making Aid as a Guest User.

The importance of Shared Decision Making:

This Shared Decision-Making Aid uses graphics, text, and video.​​

Shared Decision-Making is a way to give doctors and their staff a better way to make sure patients are partners in decisions about their health care.

This process helps patients balance risks and expected outcomes with what is most important to them, such as concerns about how to organize their lives and their ability to have the energy to enjoy it.

The Aid will take less than 10 minutes to complete. ​​
