The teams in Cardiff and Newcastle working on the Health Foundation’s MAGIC programme developed a series of tools to help them understand the progress they had made in implementing shared decision making, the challenges and some of the approaches to overcoming these.
This resource contains five tools designed to help individuals and teams measure their progress and understand the challenges and successes.
This brief survey is designed to get the health professionals’ views on how much they have involved their patient in decisions about their care and treatment.
This report sets out some key potential benefits of shared decision making and to what extent they are being realised without shared decision making, providing a framework and baseline against which the impact of implementing shared decision making can be measured.
This paper defines ‘decision quality’ as the extent to which treatments reflect the considered preferences of well-informed patients and are implemented. It sets out the four main elements involved in the decision-making process to ensure a high quality decision, and how these can be measured. It includes a fully-worked example of how to measure the quality of decision making for knee osteoarthritis, which can provide a template for developing materials for other conditions.
