- This report, commissioned by Anglia and Oxford RHA aims to clarify the concept of evidence-based patient choice (EBPC), provide guidance and make recommendations for the development and funding of future projects in EBPC, and describe those projects under way within Anglia and Oxford RHA which are centred around EBPC. It focuses on the use of evidence-based information to help people make choices when they, or those close to them, are in need of health care. The concepts of evidence-based medicine and patient choice and the relationships between them are examined, followed by an overview of the various ways in which information can be given and presented to patients. A framework for appraising and developing research on EBPC is suggested. The report concludes that EBPC is a coherent concept which brings together two important movements within health care. Two appendices provide annotated lists of relevant projects and groups, and relevant reports.
