This report from the Advisory Council for the Misuse of Drugs is a consideration of the use of multi-criteria decision analysis in drug harm decision making.

In this report the ACMD considered the use of Multi-Criteria Decision Analysis (MCDA) to support the process of developing a framework. MCDA is often used in such situations where decision makers need to derive a transparent outcome, but in an environment where there may be many and sometimes conflicting evaluations. The technique of MCDA aims to address these conflicts and derive a compromise. The process is based on developing a list of criteria and, using evidence, formulating judgements and then preferences to derive an outcome.
