Patient publications

PATIENT PUBLICATIONS LARGE BUTTONPatient booklets

Patient versions of guidelines are booklets that ‘translate’ guideline recommendations and their rationales originally produced for health professionals into a form that is more easily understood and used by patients and the public.

By writing information from guidelines in an accessible format, we are empowering people to take part in decisions about their treatment and care.
