This report highlights the journey taken by 33 clinical teams working to promote a culture of shared decision making through training health professionals, engaging patients and promoting the inclusion of shared decision making in education. This work was part of the AQuA workstream of the National QIPP Right Care shared decision making programme.
This report states that if shared decision making is to be embedded in a sustainable manner, there needs to be a system-wide, multi-disciplinary journey requiring commitment from people acropss organisations working in collaboration and partnership.
The aim of the document is to provide a road map for this journey, based experience from the programme. It is supported by a Train the Trainer Resource Pack and online resources that have been developed.
