Abstract

Objectives: Our aim was to develop a framework for clinical decision-making that can be used to take into account risk in an era of recovery and rights. Conclusion: We developed a framework influenced by civil liability law to develop a guide for clinical decision-making which emphasises collaboration, clarification of the available information and communication of decisions as essential components of recovery-oriented risk management.
