This study extends a risk information seeking and processing model to explore the relative effect of cognitive processing strategies, positive and negative emotions, and normative beliefs on individuals' decision making about potential health risks. Most previous research based on this theoretical framework has examined environmental risks. Applying this risk communication model to study health decision making presents an opportunity to explore theoretical boundaries of the model, while also… 
Ready to Make A Decision: A Model of Informational Aids to Improve Informed Participation in Clinical Trial Research
TLDR
A structural path model was proposed and tested to explain the efficacy of three Informational aids and revealed that clinical trial participation intention was associated with attitudes and social constructs and ease of use was the primary communication feature of IA that influenced the outcome variables.
Patients’ reasoning regarding the decision to participate in clinical cancer trials: an interview study
TLDR

No Regrets When It Comes to Your Health: Anticipated Regret, Subjective Norms, Information Insufficiency and Intent to Seek Health Information from Multiple Sources
TLDR
Information seeking behavior of interest in this study is intention to seek information through multiple sources, and survey results show that seeking-related subjective norms are positively related with information insufficiency through regret, and negatively related with seeking intent through regret and informationinsufficiency.
Patients’ rationale for declining participation in a cancer-associated weight loss study
TLDR
Upfront education might help cancer patients better prioritize their participation in research, particularly as some patients felt overwhelmed by too much research in the institution; and for now, investigators should keep asking patients for their participation.
Patient-centered care in cancer treatment programs: the future of integrative oncology through psychoeducation.

Seeking Formula for Misinformation Treatment in Public Health Crises: The Effects of Corrective Information Type and Source

Values clarification in a decision aid about fertility preservation: does it add to information provision?

Motivation for Health Information Seeking and Processing About Clinical Trial Enrollment
TLDR
This study examined the role of optimistic feelings, as a type of positive affect, in motivating information seeking and processing, and indicated that rather than exerting an indirect influence on information seeking through motivating a psychological need for more information, optimistic feelings have more direct relationships with informationseeking and processing.
Medical decision making among cancer patients.
TLDR
Patients' decisional style predicted their scores on measures of coping and cognitively effortful information-seeking and information-processing decisional strategies reported using more coping strategies and more of the strategies that prior research has shown to be more effective for coping with life-threatening illness.
Influence of clinical communication on patients' decision making on participation in clinical trials.
TLDR
Investigating how communication among physicians, patients, and family/companions influences patients' decision making about participation in clinical trials can help increase physician awareness of the ways that messages and communication behaviors can be observed and evaluated to improve clinical practice and research.
Public attitudes toward participation in cancer clinical trials.
TLDR
The results indicate that the primary problem with accrual is not the attitudes of patients, but rather that the loss of potential participants is the result of the unavailability of an appropriate clinical trial and the disqualification of large numbers of patients.
Decision-making and breast cancer clinical trials: how experience challenges attitudes.
Participation in Clinical Trials as Viewed by the Patient: Understanding Cultural and Emotional Aspects Which Influence Choice
TLDR
Several prejudices, fears and some hopes have been captured by the questionnaire and understanding such specifics will improve patient information leading patients to a more conscious motivation in deciding whether to participate in a clinical trial.
Public Attitudes Regarding Willingness to Participate in Medical Research Studies
TLDR
Examining public attitudes toward and support for medical research suggests that opportunities exist to increase participation by targeting recruitment efforts not only toward the willing but also toward those who are undecided about participation in medical research studies.
Proposed model of the relationship of risk information seeking and processing to the development of preventive behaviors.
TLDR
People who engage in more effortful information seeking and processing are more likely to develop risk-related cognitions, attitudes, and behaviors that are more stable (i.e., less changeable or volatile) over time.
