e-Learning for Healthcare runs a shared decision making course which has been developed with the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges and the Winton Centre for Risk and Evidence Communication at the University of Cambridge

It is aimed at healthcare professionals, health improvement personnel and patient engagement representatives to inform and educate them on Shared Decision Making in order to embed it in day to day clinical practice.
