Condition specific option grids
This webpage contains a series of condition-specific option grids.
Option grids are designed to help compare reasonable treatment or screening options. This is achieved by using a grid, where the questions that patients frequently ask are in the rows and the answers relevant to each option are in the columns.
Each option grid included on the site has been developed by a team of clinicians, patients and editors who adhere to a protocol. The content is based on the best available scientific evidence, and is in line with standards that have been developed.
Where relevant, the grids use guidance developed by NICE and some have been developed in collaboration with NICE, including input from their patient panels, and are based on their most recently published guidance.
