These resources outline recommended approaches to having realistic conversations and offer toolkits for experienced facilitators delivering communication education webinars or workshops on Shared Decision Making and Anticipatory care Planning (ACP).

Resources include:

  • Shared decision making and the DECIDE Model (Define, Explain, Consider, Invite, Decide, Evaluate) - a helpful framework to use when having a conversation with the person and their family to involve them in decision making about their care
  • REDMAP Framework (Ready, Expect, Diagnosis, Matters, Actions, Plan) - used when having a conversation with a person and their family about Anticipatory Care Planning
  • Masterclass toolkits – covering ACP, REDMAP and Shared Decision Making and DECIDE which can be downloaded for use in your local areas.

This work has been developed by Senior Clinicians within Greater Glasgow and Clyde and the Effective Communication for Healthcare Team (EC4H) in collaboration with NES, Quality Improvement Team.
