Background: DECIDE is a 5-year project funded by the EU FP7 programme. Now in its 2nd year, the aim is to develop and evaluate methods that improve the dissemination of evidence-based guideline recommendations and support the implementation of these recommendations. DECIDE will produce tailored methods for healthcare workers, the public and policymakers.

Objective: This workshop will give participants an opportunity to catch up with DECIDE progress and to actively contribute to the evaluation of pilot versions of recommendations, decision aids and other tools that are under development.

Target audience: Guideline developers and others with an interest in helping healthcare workers, patients and policymakers to make effective use of guidelines recommendations.

Description of the workshop: The workshop will open with a brief introduction to DECIDE and its individual components. The bulk of the workshop will be an interactive session where participants will be invited to work in small focus groups to test and give feedback on tools and methods that aim, for example, to support family doctors in implementing guidelines, directly support treatment discussions between health workers and patients, or support patients seeking additional information. This feedback will inform later stages of the project where tools are tested with guideline developers and users.
