1. …I would be motivated to think further about my risk.      
2. …I would be motivated to request further information from my family doctor.      
3. …I would be motivated to use other sources to learn more about my risk.      
4. …I would feel sufficiently informed by the display to make a decision for or against an intervention.      
5. …I would be motivated to talk with my doctor about the decision for or against therapy.      
6. …I would be sufficiently informed to decide together with my doctor whether I should receive treatment.
