correcting could in a sentence


The family has been educated concerning the patient's condition. They need to make a decision based on this education. How may I re-write this sentence?

See example:

Based on their being educated about Matts' condition the family could then make an educated decision.

Matt's relatives have been advised about his condition and they are now in a position  to make an informed decision

(Educated decision is not bad but more often describes a guess, which is not what poor Matt needs!)
