Abstract: 
Objectives:
To learn how to create a decision aid from a Cochrane review. This workshop involves group work, with guidance from workshop trainers.

Description:
Patient decision aids help people decide about treatment options. They provide current evidence on the options and help patients clarify and communicate the personal value they associate with different features of the options. The Cochrane Musculokeletal Group develops decision aids based on the ‘Summary of findings’ (SoF) tables from each Cochrane review. This workshop provides a summary of the evidence from the Cochrane Review of patient decision aids, a brief overview of the International Patient Decision Aid Standards (IPDAS) and guidance on the process using plain language to communicate relative and absolute risk, quality of evidence and incorporate personal values and preferences.
Working within teams of 2 to 3 and with guidance from the workshop leaders, participants will work through the steps to create a decision aid that meets the international standard. Participants will leave the workshop with increased awareness of using plain language to present scientific information, uncertainty and values, as well as a draft decision aid and some guidance about field testing it using outcome measures such as decisional conflict and informed choice.
