AbbVie wants to see shared decision making be widely adopted across
To support this ambition, AbbVie held the Shared Decision Making
Showcase in Parliament on the 10th March 2020. A year on from the
publication of the NHS Long Term Plan, and Universalised Personalised
Care Plan – which established ambitious targets to put shared decision
making at the heart of patient care – the showcase provided a platform
for patient groups, NHS Trusts, and healthcare providers to share
their innovative work.
The projects showcased ranged from MS, arthritis, Lymphoma, Autism,
Hepatitis C, kidney dialysis and more—all focused on empowering
patients to take an active part in decisions about their treatment and care.
AbbVie has supported a number of organisations and projects to
develop and enable shared decision making including two of the
showcased initiatives: a survey of treatment decision experience
amongst psoriasis patients and the work of the Patient Information
Forum to develop and implement the Perfect Patient Information Journey.
