This is a pilot trial to assess feasibility and acceptability of MyVoice vs. a patient pamphlet among female patients ages 18-44 (n=50) who receive rheumatology care.

Hypothesis: MyVoice will be feasible and acceptable to patients who receive rheumatology care.


The pilot will demonstrate if the MyVoice decision aid can be feasibly and acceptably implemented into the rheumatology context and inform operational procedures for a future hybrid effectiveness-implementation trial. Women in the intervention arm will receive the MyVoice decision aid (n=38). Women in the control arm (n=12) will receive a widely-accessible paper-based pamphlet about pregnancy, which, similarly to MyVoice, targets women with a broad range of rheumatic diseases.

Rheumatologists will have no obligatory actions; however, if one or more of their patients completed the study, they will be emailed an anonymous survey about their experiences with the study and related patient encounters. This will occur 2 weeks after the final patient participant completes the study. Rheumatologists will not be informed by study personnel which of their patients participated in the study.
