When there is more than one possible treatment, and clinicians involve their patients in deciding which treatment to pursue, this is called Shared Decision Making. Patients who are involved in choosing their care respond better to treatment. However, currently, inconsistencies occur across healthcare services. Dr Helen Pryce from Aston University will identify what patients need to know to make meaningful treatment choices and will develop the first Option Grid for tinnitus.

This 18 month project will cost £72,521 and will lead to an improved, consistent quality of care for all tinnitus patients.
