The complex 'Decision tree'

Following a recent discussion with care workers it became clear that even the most experienced and undoubtedly intelligent among us can become confused when faced with complex care decisions. This isn't because the issues we face are necessarily too difficult to resolve. It's often simply because there are so many variables that it's hard to seperate them out into meaningful 'bite size' chunks.
So I've decided to write a new blog series outlining my version of how to get down to the basics of difficult situations in a systematic, understandable way.
I'm not sure yet whether it'll run on this blog or my personal wordpress blog but I'll make sure that the resulting PDF will be available through both sites either way.
As part of my own preparation for this I've developed a single page algorithm (the 'Decision tree' itself) to accompany the series. It is available on the freebies page but you can also access the 'Decision tree' here
It prints out as a single A4 sheet and should be easy to find space for on your office wall for quick reference at work.
