The Shared Decision Making Summary Guide is intended for people leading local implementation of shared decision making. It enables:
- increased understanding of what good shared decision making looks like and how it ensures that we commission and provide systems and services that informed individuals want
- commissioning of local shared decision making initiatives and embedding them in care pathways
- providers to have better conversations with people using services, thereby supporting them to make more informed choices based on their personal values and preferences and what is known of the risks, benefits and consequences of the options available to them.
