This presentation sets out findings of an on-line survey of over 500 people with long term conditions. The survey showed that most patients want to be helped to help themselves, and reported that self management courses significantly reduce their visits to A&E, as well as to GP surgeries.
Teams working on the Health Foundation's MAGIC programme designed workshops to help health professionals develop the skills and techniques for effective shared decision making. Materials to support the programme include overheads, handouts and pre and post-training self assessment.
Supporting people to make informed decisions about their health and care: learning from the MAGIC programme
In October 2013, the Health Foundation hosted a national event to share the practical learning about how teams from its MAGIC programme have embedded shared decision making across the health systems they work in.
This presentation sets out what shared decision making is, why it is important and six steps involved in making shared decisions. It describes what a patient decision aid is and how they are developed by the IMDF and can be used in consultations.
Created by the Newcastle and Cardiff teams as part of the Health Foundation’s MAGIC programme, this series of overheads can be presented to explain the general concept of Shared Decision Making and some of the key skills needed and tools that support its implementation.
This presentation sets out how Group Health implemented shared decision making across a range of conditions leading to higher patient satisfaction, higher quality and a substantial reduction in costs.
