Abstract: This systematic review focuses on articles with outcomes influenced by consumer decision aids (CDAs).  Participants included were primarily decision-makers and health consumers. Over 500 titles and abstracts were identified using an augmented version of O'Conner et al. (1997). No specific study design was used as a selection criteria.  A final 12 studies were synthesized after meeting all exclusionary criteria and results indicated that with exception to vaccination, decision aids did not appear to influence actual treatment or screening decisions.
