Person-Centered Care: Considerations for Measurement and Application
Presented by Dr. Patricia Wright and Johanna Murphy
Person centered care (PCC) asserts that patients are complex humans and should not be viewed solely as their diagnosis. PCC moves away from a model in which the patient is the passive target of an intervention to promoting full involvement of the patient in care and decision making. There are many benefits to PCC including improved harmony between care provider and patient on treatment plans, better health outcomes and increased patient satisfaction. Watch this webinar to learn about implementation and measurement of PCC including a first-person narrative from Johanna Murphy as a patient with autism navigating and acquiring care.
