Corporate document

This framework sets out a series of standards to support people using patient decision aids (PDAs) in assessing the usefulness and quality of a PDA. The framework will also be useful to those developing PDAs in enabling them to undertake a self-assessment of the quality of their tools and processes.

It will help people who use healthcare services and healthcare professionals to identify and understand the elements of a good quality PDA. It will also help people developing or reviewing PDAs to understand how to produce high-quality decision support and what elements they need to include.
