This set of pages was developed by Capita as part of the national Shared Decision Making Programme, as part of the Right Care Programme. It is a resource pack for commissioners and outlines the steps to embedding Shared Decision making across your local health economy.
The resource pack has been tested on the ground with commissioners, including Clinical Commissioning Groups, who focussed on developing a Shared Decision Making approach across their health economy. It aims to provide practical advice and support. You will need to consider having appropriate people to support the implementation of change. Having a clinical lead for this work with commitment to the principles of Shared Decision Making and influence across the health system is vital.
Each section represents a sequential stage in embedding Shared Decision Making, and covers project initiation through to evaluation. The stages are:
- Project Initiation
- Coordination, Leadership and Stakeholder Support
- Engaging Patients and Carers
- Engaging Staff
- Securing and sustaining change
