THE DEC:IDES TRIAL

DEcision-making Capacity: Intervention Development and Evaluation in Schizophrenia-spectrum disorder

We are recruiting participants for a clinical trial called DEC:IDES. This research study is running in one site in Scotland (NHS Lothian), and two sites in England (Lancashire and South Cumbria NHS Foundation Trust and Pennine Care NHS Foundation Trust). DEC:IDES is testing new ways to help people with psychosis make decisions about their psychiatric treatment. It is a feasibility trial, which means it will help us decide whether to run a larger trial. DEC:IDES is funded by the Chief Scientist Office.
