In this three minute video, Kate Martin, a member of the Shared Decision Making in CAMHS Steering Group, talks about how shared decision making has changed practice and improved outcomes in CAMHS services.
This article highlights that whilst large scale implementation programmes in the UK have delivered valuable lessons on how best to embed shared decision making, adoption of shared decision making into routine clinical settings has been slow.
This three minute video is designed to help patients to feel more confident to ask questions and participate in decisions about their treatment and care. It features a series of patients explaining why it is important to be involved and setting out three questions that can help people to understand their choices. It can be used alongside posters and other materials to support an 'Ask 3 questions' campaign.
The Ask 3 Questions campaign is designed to encourage patients to ask questions and play a more active role in decisions about their treatment and care. There are posters and leaflets and other materials which can be displayed to encourage and support people.
This audit tool provides a simple checklist to help services assess how well they are promoting materials that encourage people to Ask 3 Questions.
These materials were created by the Health Foundation’s MAGIC programme and can be adapated for local use. They include a poster, flyer and business card designed to encourage people and increase their confidence in playing an active part in decisions about their own care.
This case study describes how the team in Cardiff working on the Health Foundation's MAGIC programme developed the 'Ask 3 Questions' campaign based on research by Shepherd et al. at the University of Sydney.
These webpages are part of Cardiff & Vale University Health Board’s Ask 3 Questions campaign to raise awareness of shared decision making and encourage both patients and doctors to work together in deciding on the best course of action.
The webpages are primarily designed to provide information to patients and could be used as a model by others interested in creating similar webpages for their organisation or health economy.
