NICE Standards Framework
Nice published Shared Decision Making Guidelines in 2021. A Standards Framework for Shared Decision Making Support tools, accompanied by the Guidelines. PIF was a member of the oversight panel for the production of the framework.
The framework is designed to help people who use healthcare services and healthcare professionals to identify and understand the elements of a good quality PDA. It also helps people developing or reviewing PDAs to understand how to produce high-quality decision support and what elements they need to include.
The standards align with the PIF TICK criteria but include extra items specific to decision support tools. NICE is now developing an implementation pack to provide additional support to users of the framework. PIF will again be involved in the consultation on the development.
