Involving patients in shared decision-making

The King’s Fund has published a paper about shared decision-making.

Making Shared Decision-making a Reality: No Decision About Me, Without Me outlines the importance of communication skills and sets out how clinicians might approach consultations to arrive at shared decisions. It also suggests that tools that help patients to make decisions are just as important as guidelines for clinicians.
