Shared Decision Making

The national Right Care Shared Decision Making Programme aims to promote patient centred care, increase patient choice and empowerment in clinical decision making - making “no decision about me without me” a reality.


The SPT was been asked in 2011 to procure a partner to deliver Phase 4 of the 2011/2012 programme, which is divided into the following three workstreams:

  1. The development of Patient Decision Aids and shorter interventions (including hosting, maintenance, clinical updates, printed versions, telephony back-up, language lines, decision coaching and dissemination)
  2. To embed Patient Decision Aids and related Shared Decision Making interventions in NHS systems
  3. To create a receptive culture for shared decision making in the NHS.


We are delighted to continue giving communications support to the programme management team.
