Summary In a recent study we developed a decision aid for prenatal testing of fetal abnormalities. The effectiveness of the decision aid compared with a pamphlet in increasing women's informed choice and decreasing conflict was evaluated using a cluster randomised controlled trial, A DEcision aid for Prenatal Testing for fetal abnormalities (ADEPT) [ISRCTN22532458]. Challenged with the need to ensure that the decision aid best suited the needs of women and health professionals involved General Practitioners (GPs), we explored the potential of both quantitative and qualitative methodologies to inform the development phase. In this article we discuss our rationale for, and provide some insights regarding our experience of, using qualitative methods during the development phase of the decision aid.
