What is IPDASi assessment?

Based on the IPDAS checklist published in the BMJ article, Developing a quality criteria framework for patient decision aids: online international Delphi consensus process (BMJ 333:41721, 2006) a new instrument has been developed to assess the quality of decision aids (decision support interventions and technologies). IPDASi enables quality assessment at 10 broad dimensions. Our raters have been trained and calibrated to undertake these assessments.
