Patient Self Care

Shared Decision Making - working with patients to make individual choices

Shared decision making is the conversation that happens between a patient and their health professional to reach a healthcare choice together. This conversation needs patients and professionals to understand what is important to the other person when choosing a treatment.

Patient Decision Aids are specially designed information resources that help people make decisions about difficult healthcare options.  They will help you to think about why one option is better for you than another. People's views change over time depending on their experiences and who they talk to. Understanding what is important to you about your decision will help you choose the option that is best for you.

If you are thinking about having a knee or hip replacement or screening for prostrate cancer then we recommend that you look at the shared decision making information provided by the NHS.
