Person-centred care: what everyone should know

Most of us think we know what person-centred care is, and many health service providers think that’s what they deliver. Yet research shows that only half of patients say they are involved as much as they want in decisions about their care; so despite good intentions we still have a long way to go. The Health Foundation defines the principles of person-centred care, and discusses its importance for the future of our health services.
