Shared decision making is an integral part of healthcare

Shared decision making between patients and clinicians should be embedded throughout healthcare services, says NICE.

The guideline published recommends a range of measures to help ensure that patients are involved in decision making around their care. It also calls on health and social care organisations to provide accessible information during care planning, using translators and external advocates when necessary.
