Informed Decisions

Knee Replacement Decision Aid Project 

www.informeddecisionmaking.org.uk

Evidence shows that involving patients in decision making improves their health outcomes and can decrease the need for evasive surgery. The NHS Institute has commissioned this project to bring together key thinkers in the field of knee surgery and decision aids to develop informed decision tools for patients and healthcare professionals. The tools will be tested to see if patient experience and outcomes can be better if the alternative treatment options are considered.  Learning from this project is being shared so that other groups wishing to develop decision aids can benefit from the process.
