Right Care decision aids

Right Care has launched 14 patient decision aids.

The aim of the Right Care shared decision making programme is to embed shared decision making in NHS care. This is part of the wider ambition to promote patient centred care, to increase patient choice, autonomy and involvement in clinical decision making and make “no decision about me, without me” a reality.

Patient decision aids help people think about healthcare decisions in the context of their lives. They have written information that is accurate and balanced, ask questions to let you think how the treatment consequences might affect you, and summarise your reasons for choosing, or not choosing, an option.
