Person-centred care: from ideas to action

3 Oct 2014 | Partners in Care

A new report from The Health Foundation Person-centered care: from ideas to action, brings together evidence on shared decision making.

The research team set out to ‘bring together’ the evidence about shared decision making by looking at four different, but interconnected, issues.

  • What is the conceptual relationship between shared decision making and self-management support?
  • What is the policy context for person-centred care in the NHS, and where do shared decision making and self-management support sit within this?
  • What does the empirical evidence say about the outcomes and impacts of interventions to enact shared decision making and self-management support?
  • What works in implementing shared decision making and self-management support into mainstream health care services?

The full report is available on The Health Foundation website: Person-centred care: from ideas to action.

The Health Foundation will also be running a webinar on this topic on 28 November 2014 – fill in this online form to register your interest.
