Naidex is Europe's most established trade, professional and public event dedicated to the care, rehabilitation and lifestyle of people with a disability or impairment.

In three linked sessions on Thursday 26 April, the challenges of implementing values-based practice in Montgomery-style shared decision-making from the perspectives respectively of service users, practitioners and service providers will be explored.

The sessions will be interactive and include opportunities for participants to suggest on-going work with the recently launched Centre for Values-based Practice in Health and Social Care at St Catherine’s College in Oxford.

The first session (led by David Crepaz-Keay, Head of Empowerment and social Inclusion at the Mental Health Foundation) will include a presentation illustrating the significance of shifting from practitioners’ to patients’ values in a new person-centred approach to suicide risk management.

The second session (led by Ashok Handa, Tutor for Surgery at the Nuffield Department of Surgical Sciences in Oxford) will describe training developments in values-based practice with medical and other clinical staff and their patients. Ashok will include clinical examples illustrating how such training supports shared decision-making in the context of a busy surgical outpatient clinic.

The third session (led by Peter Lyne, Founder of MASIS, the Mobility and Support Information Service) will illustrate the power of on-going collaboration between an experienced service provider and the Centre in developing shared decision-making for disability services that ensure we are ‘More than the Treatment’.
