The decision driver helps crystalise why your organisation is reviewing the issue. This helps clarify the problem statement and ensure the appropriate assessments are completed.
- Based on the information you collected in the Issue Characterisation Checklist (Task 1), identify the decision driver. Decision drivers may include:
- A threat
- A proposed intervention
- Social or ethical concerns
- List some specific features of your decision driver. For example:
- Possible features of a threat: Threat to donors, threat to recipients, blood shortage
- Possible features of an intervention: New technology to replace current technology, may require lengthy regulatory approval
- Possible features of a social concern: Sensitive issue, potential for legal ramifications
- Note: If you identify more than one decision driver, repeat the above for the other drivers.
