What Are The Principles Of Person Centred Care?
Person centred care focuses on the needs of the individual. Rather than take the view that a person will passively engage with a health care service, it instead makes their needs, world view, and personal preference a priority.
A person-centred approach gives people choice and control over all aspects of their lives. It also empowers them to take an active role in managing their own health and well-being. This approach to care is one of the 13 fundamental standards of care required by the Care Quality Commission, which is the independent regulator of health and social care in England.
