What do we mean by Person Centred Care? Well, the term originated in the 1940s and proposed taking a holistic view of service users in care settings. This means getting to know the person and then tailoring their care as much as possible to meet their specific needs.
Person centred care is now a key principle outlined in current legislation and it plays an important part in the standards that they set out, standards which must be followed by all care professionals working in this country.
The Person-Centred Care course starts by explaining what we mean by person centred care and where this term originated.
It then goes on to analyse the values represented by person centred care and explains why care should be, as much as possible, tailored to each service user.
Finally, it will give you an overview of care plans, daily reports, the importance of obtaining consent and much more.
