Having worked with the dilemmas of clinical governance and prescribing support for many years I was impressed by the simplicity of this offering from a clinician-led initiative which aims to support open conversations between patients and their clinicians to make decisions together about the right care for the individual.
It centres on 4 questions for patients to ask clinicians:
What are my options?
What are the risks and benefits?
Do I really need this?
What can I do to help myself?
