Shared Decision Making

Patient Decision Aids

Shared Decision Making is a process in which patients, when they reach a decision crossroads in their health care, can review the treatment options available to them.

For more information about this please click on the following link:

Decision aids prepare people for decision making by increasing their knowledge about expected outcomes.

These patient decision aids (PDAs) have been developed to help support difficult decisions in which patients need to consider benefits versus risks. They are based on the best available evidence but are not a substitute for a discussion with a suitably skilled healthcare professional.

We hope that their use in such discussions will result in better informed, patient focused decision making.
