The team in Newcastle working on the Health Foundation’s MAGIC programme to implement shared decision making developed a series of Brief Decision Aids on a wide variety of conditions. The decision aids provide a brief description of the condition and set out the different options for managing it and the benefits, risks and consequences of each.
They are designed to support people to make an informed decision about their treatment and care. All the Brief Decision Aids developed by the Newcastle team can be downloaded from here. There is also a guide for clinicians to using Brief Decision Aids.

Other decision aids
The team developed these additional decision aids which use a different format:
This decision aid is sets out the choices, with the pros and cons for each, and includes a series of questions to help the person who is making the choice determine what is important to them about the type of birth they want.
This decision aid is designed to help people facing a choice about breast surgery to understand their options and explore what matters most to them.
This leaflet provides some facts about the screening text and some of the reasons for and against accepting or declining the test.
