A well-informed family can actively participate in the decision-making process and better understand the likely or potential outcomes of treatment. The process of informed decision-making builds confidence and reduces anxiety. An open two-way dialogue between family and professionals about the benefits, risks and treatment alternatives, considering not only audiological outcome but also family well-being, is fundamental to the informed decision-making process.
