AQuA Workstream of the National Shared Decision Making Programme: Evaluation Report (AQuA)


Advancing Quality Alliance (AQuA) was commissioned by Right Care (for the Department of Health) as one of three national participants in the Right Care Shared Decision Making Programme 2012-13.
This output and evaluation report summarises the work of the AQuA workstream about shared decision making.

“Shared Decision Making (SDM) is a process in which patients are encouraged by their health professional to participate in selecting the most appropriate health treatments or care management options for their individual needs and preferences. Not being properly informed about their illness and the options for treatment / management is the most common cause of patient dissatisfaction”.
