Jeff Belkora developed SCOPED as a checklist for making decisions.
SCOPED stands for:
Situation, Choices, Objectives, People, Evaluation, and Decisions.
People use SCOPED to think, talk, read and write about decisions.
Situation: clarifying known facts about my condition
Choices: clarifying which options are available
Objectives: clarifying my goals and priorities
People: clarifying roles and responsibilities
Evaluation: clarifying how my choices affect my objectives
Decisions: clarifying which choice is best and next steps
