Measuring Concordance in Clinical Practice

Barron, Derek T; Snowden, Austyn


Derek T Barron


This article describes the construction of a tool to measure concordance in clinical practice. The second of two parts, it details the strategic background underpinning concordance and expands the rationale as this relates to the construction of individual items within the evaluation tool used and described. Cribb (2011) considers that while policy drivers extol the rhetoric of shared decision-making and person-centred care, the application of this is complex. Cribb's thesis is summarised to show that the evaluation tool is grounded in the right type of evidence to support the facilitation of concordance in clinical practice.
