Decision Support Tool

Decision Support Tool

The decision support tool advises on management of a child or young adult presenting with various symptoms, in relation to exploring the possibility of a brain tumour.

It is based on the RCPCH, NICE-accredited Diagnosis of Brain Tumours in Children guideline.

Healthcare professionals should use it to support their decision making when assessing children who may have an intracranial tumour. It does not however override the responsibility of a healthcare professional to make decisions appropriate to the condition of individual children.
