IPDAS is an international collaboration that aims to enhance the quality and effectiveness of patient decision aids.
To this end, IPDAS has created an IPDAS Checklist that can be used as an evidence-informed framework for improving the content, development, and evaluation of patient decision aids. [Elwyn et al., in BMJ 2006; 333(7565) 417]
The original IPDAS Checklist consists of 12 Quality Dimensions, which are:
Each of these 12 Quality Dimensions incorporates several dimension-specific Criteria.
Given rapid developments in this field, itís necessary for the IPDAS Collaboration to regularly review the Quality Dimensions and specific Criteria.
