The concept of person-centred care is a complex one. To deliver true person-centred care there are a lot of components to be aware of and no definitive “How-to” manual.
As healthcare providers we’re trained to solve problems. When it comes to person-centred care we typically focus on the wrong problems. We’re good at finding and addressing bio-medical and bio-mechanical problems. We’re even reasonable at identifying and addressing patient-centred problems. We haven’t been trained to look for problems at a person-centred level.
We need to be able to identify these person-centred problems in order to help deliver person-centred care. This podcast will help you do that.
It’s not the only way to improve your person-centred healthcare, it’s probably not the best way, but it is a way we can wrap our heads around so we can improve our ability to help people.
