In 2015, CIRS initiated a programme in Quality Decision Making with the following aims:

  • Evaluate the current decision-frameworks and understand the characteristics of different decision-making processes
  • Assess the quality of decision-making processes and practices that need to be considered when making a decision, as well as influences and biases that may impact the process
  • Develop the principles of a quality decision framework and identify markers and practices that build quality into decision making

This R&D Briefing describes the evolution of the programme, including associated workshops and studies using decision-making tools.
