Option Grids: easy to use shared decision making tools for disadvantaged groups
We know that complex extensive patient support tools (decision aids) help patients become active partners in making health care decisions and in learning to self-manage long term illnesses.
However, we also know that it is very difficult to get these extensive tools used in clinical practice, for a range of practical reasons.
The aim of this research is to provide evidence that patient decision support tools are also effective when provided in brief formats (Option Grids), and designed so that they can be used by people who are disadvantaged by low literacy levels or language barriers.
