Developments in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis research and care delivery have created new arenas, and new dilemmas, for patients’ decision-making. This review explores three aspects of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis patient-centered care and decision-making: patient-centered service delivery through the expanding multidisciplinary team; decision-making for genetic testing and the implications of undergoing testing; and development of user-designed decision support tools to help patients and families make decisions as their choices become more complex. Until a cure is found, well-timed and effective decision-making will rely on patient and family preferences to guide them through an increasingly complicated disease landscape.
