Torbay Charts – A Shared Decision Making Platform

Torbay Charts is a new kind of patient decision aid, or decision support tool, available in both online and print versions that are meant to help patients and healthcare teams decide together on a course of care.
Torbay Charts provides details in layers to avoid overwhelming patients with information. To attract attention, the first layer presents information in an infographic style. It enables patients and their healthcare expert to work together and navigate the complex maze of treatment alternatives.
The second layer goes over each treatment in greater depth. Patients can compare relevant and appropriate treatments at their own pace.
When used in partnership with a clinician, Torbay charts can lead to an improved Shared Decision Making discussion, allowing patients to personalise their treatment.
