Improved Clinical Decision Making

Supports professional decision-making where the emphasis is on improving relationships at all levels. This approach aids reasoning around risk assessment and understanding of relative risk, helping professionals to make decisions which protect the autonomy and personal responsibility of the people they work with.  By undertaking this training, health and care teams will be more confident to engage in skilled, empowering conversations within and across teams, and with families, carers and leaders, thereby reducing anxiety and psychological dependence on services. It focuses on outcomes for people, recognising the need for evidence-based care pathways and processes to guide decisions, it discourages rigid adherence to condition-based pathways and a one-size-fits all approach to care delivery.
