The national Shared Decision Making Programme has launched five online patient decision aids, which have been designed and developed by Totally Health. The aids aim to help people think about healthcare decisions using information that has been compiled by the BMJ Group to choose the treatment that best suits their needs. The five aids covering abdominal aortic aneurysm repair, cataracts, established kidney failure and specific established kidney failure decision aids for dialysis and transplant, are the first in a series of 36 that will be rolled out over the coming months. Patients can work through the online support in their own time and a team of specially trained telephone health coaches are available if help and additional support is required.
