Frailty: Skills and Strategies for Shared Decision Making

Shared decision making is a consultation process that requires the collaboration between health professionals and patients to reach the most appropriate healthcare decisions. For clinicians, this requires complex skills to invite the patient to decision making process, present treatment options and discuss the evidence that balances risks, harms and expected outcomes alongside the patient’s values and preferences.

For patients who are living with frailty there are various timepoints where shared decision making may be key to the consultation, therefore requiring additional skills development.
