The Right Care programme is focussed on increasing value – value for patients and value for commissioners. The programme is targeted at clinicians, commissioners and patients and has five workstreams including one on Shared Decision Making. 36 Patient Decision Aids (PDAs) are being created during 2012, designed to help patients understand and consider the pros and cons of possible treatment options and to encourage communication between them and their healthcare professionals.
