Person-Centred Approaches (2017)

The value of a person-centred approach in health and care is increasingly recognised – much has been written about what it is and why it is important. However, it is less clear how to develop the workforce to put this into practice – which is the purpose of this framework.

The framework launched in July 2017 and comprises the following subject areas:

  • Values
  • Core communication and relationship building skills
  • Step 1. Conversations to engage with people
  • Step 2. Conversations to enable and support people
  • Step 3. Conversations with people to collaboratively manage highest complexity and significant risk
  • Delivery of training, education and learning opportunities
  • ‘Enablers’ for embedding a person-centred approach
