Supporting Shared Decision-Making – a pathfinder project for NHS North West

NHS North West commissioned Picker to design and deliver a shared decision-making project, funded by the Department of Health’s Pathfinder allocation to the Strategic Health Authority.

The work aimed to:

  • build on and contribute to the evidence base for understanding and supporting shared decision-making;  
  • develop recommendations for advancing shared decision-making within local health services.

Key themes were identified and explored in-depth in a series of focus groups. This report describes these themes and the recommendations derived from all elements of the project.
