EPSRC IAA Project weDecide: Clinical Tool for Shared Decision-Making for Treatment of Menopause Symptoms

EPSRC IAA Project weDecide: Clinical Tool for Shared Decision-Making for Treatment of Menopause Symptoms (April 2024 – Jan 2025)

10 per cent of women leave the workforce due to menopause, while one in four considers leaving. The weDecide project aims to evaluate a novel technique to support personalised and shared decision-making (PSDM) for menopause treatment that considers not just the criteria of a menopause expert but also that of the woman experiencing the peri-menopausal symptoms. The technique builds on the decision-making AI-based tool developed in the EPSRC project Twenty20Insight, which considers the priorities/preferences of humans. weDecide focuses on assessing the clinical relevance and acceptability of the decisions prompted by the weDecide Tool, and will inform an EPSRC bid.
