This Webinar will use decision support tools recently produced by the Personalised Care Group at NHSE & NHSI to demonstrate what DSTs are and how we can use them in practice. We will explore the evidence base behind them and hear from clinicians and patients who have used them to support decision making.
Decision Support Tools (DSTs) (or Patient Decision Aids) are increasingly being used in clinical practice to support shared decision-making consultations. The Personalised Care Group at NHSE & NHSI have recently produced a series of new DSTs for use across a number of clinical areas.
In this webinar we will look at the evidence for using DSTs and how we can incorporate them into our clinical practice. We will introduce the tools that have been produced and explain how and why they were made. There features of the tools will be explained so that clinicians can get the most out of using them tools in practice.
• To understand, using examples, the essential features of decision support tools and how they are different from standard patient information leaflets.
• To establish why there is a need for DSTs and where they fit in medical consultations with reference to the shared decision making model.
• To have an awareness of the benefits and limitations of DSTs.
• To consider how to integrate DSTs into clinical practice.
