Patient Decision Aids

 Patient Decision aids

 


Patient Decision Aids (PDAs) are designed to help patients make difficult decisions about their treatments and medical tests. They are used when there is no clinical evidence to suggest that one treatment is better than another and patients need help in deciding which option will be best for them.

Research shows that PDAs are really effective in helping patients make informed choices about their healthcare and increase patients’ awareness of the expected risks, benefits and likely outcomes.

Each decision aid allows you to create a personal record of your journey by building a summary of the pages you visit and the answers to all the questions asked. This summary will be available to your health professional and used when discussing your treatment preferences with them.

For enquiries about the decision aids, call 0345 604 7355
