[Correspondence] SHERPA: a new model for clinical decision making in patients with multimorbidity

Data on how to improve the care of patients with multimorbidity are lacking.1 Evidence-based medicine and the teaching of consultation skills—two of the cornerstones of modern clinical practice—are not sufficient for making decisions with and for patients with multimorbidity. Therefore, we have developed a new model that supports the translation of population-based, evidence-based medicine and complex consultation models into simpler, natural conversations about care appropriate for and agreed with individual patients.
