Prioritising person-centred care – the evidence – National Voices [UK]

“In these pages you can find the evidence from 779 systematic reviews of ways to make person centred care happen.

We provide accessible and accurate information so commissioners, health professionals and service-user groups can see what works best and how to invest time and resources.

Person-centred care involves placing people at the forefront of their health and care. It ensures people retain control, helps them make informed decisions and supports a partnership between individuals, families and services.

Some of the main components of person-centred care involve:

• supporting self-management
• supporting shared decision-making
• enhancing experience of healthcare
• improving information and understanding, and
• promoting prevention

These pages summarise the highest quality evidence about what works in each of these areas. ”

Helping measure person-centred care – The Health Foundation – March 2014

“Person-centred, individualised, personalised, patient-centred, family-centred, patient-centric and many other terms have been used to signal a change in how health services engage with people. This rapid review summarises research about measuring the extent to which care is person-centred.

Three key questions guided the review:

How is person-centred care being measured in healthcare?
What types of measures are used?
Why and by whom is measurement taking place?

The review signposts to research about commonly used approaches and tools to help measure person-centred care. It aims to showcase the many tools available.

A spreadsheet listing 160 of the most commonly researched measurement tools accompanies the review. This allows users to search according to the type of tool, who it targets and the main contexts it has been tested in. Hyperlinks to the abstracts of examples of research using each tool are also provided.

The review shows that, while a large number of tools are available to measure person-centred care, there is no agreement about which tools are most worthwhile.”
