Patient Decision Aids
Decision Aids are designed to help people make decisions about difficult healthcare choices.
They have good quality information about all the options and the health problem, and questions to help you think about what is important to you.
Going through a Decision Aid will help you make an informed decision about which option is best for you.
You can find out more about Decision Aids nationally by clicking here or visit eastbourne hailsham and Seaford Clinical Commissioning Group ( CCG ) website using this link http://www.eastbournehailshamandseafordccg.nhs.uk/page1.aspx?p=13&pr=X31113 and going to the Patient Decision Aids tab.
The CCG website will only give you access at the present time ( May 2013 ) to Musculoskeletal conditions ( i.e. Osteoarthritis or Tennis Elbow etc. ) and Gynaecological conditions ( i.e. Menorrhagia etc. ). The list on the CCG website is not exhaustive, but will be expanded to encompass other medical conditions over the forthcoming weeks and months and so it is advisable to view this website at periodic intervals.
