This presentation is going to talk about person- centred care, confidentiality, respecting privacy and dignity and protecting from risks and harm. The common core principles are important to every Health and Social Care setting as they provide a basis for a general understanding of promoting good mental health and recognising signs of poor mental health among everyone receiving care and support. The aim of care home are to meet the identified needs of individuals who live in that home. An older person might need to live in that care home for years. It is important for staff to be aware of responsibilities in delivering care to support the individuals who live at that home. These common principles of health will help develop the workforce that respond confidently to the individuals and supporting the life they are leading.
Person centred care could be defined as focusing on a person’s individual needs, wants, wishes and where they see their target goal. Person centred care also takes into account delivering person centred care to the patients family and carers, as well as the multidisciplinary team that is working together to provide care. The service user is the most important person in decision making for their health care and the nursing process. (Draper et al 2013). Person centred care reminds nurses and care staff that they are caring for the service user, their families and care staff providing the care, this allows the patient power in decision making towards their health and wellbeing. (Pope, 2011)
This paper will explain the components of the Home Health Care delivery system of continuum. The reader will be able to understand some of the services provided by the home health care system and how they fit into the continuum of care. It will give details on how the entity does or does not contribute to the overall management of healthcare resources.
There are three important aspects to the therapist’s approach; congruence, unconditional positive regard and accurate empathic understanding. These are three core conditions that facilitate the actualization and growth. These conditions relate to the shared journey in which therapists and clients reveal their humanness and participate in a growth experience together.Its only
There are four main approaches to person centred practice, “Pathway” planning, “Maps” planning, “Person centred portfolios” (otherwise known as “Essential Lifestyle Planning”) and “Personal Future Planning.” Discussion will prove that “ each shares characteristics that explicitly emphasise the personal empowerment of service users, in which the principal direction for support generates from those for whom planning is being carried out.”(Langley, 2001) However the use different formats means that each approach focuses on different aspects and my comparison will note strengths and weaknesses, and how they are designed for implementation in different scenarios of person centred practice and planning.
The need for older people to have their autonomy to make a decision and be an active partner in the decision making process must be recognised and is an essential component in person centred care. ‘’The older person and family have the right to make informed decisions about all aspects of their care and the nurse respects the level of participation desired’’ (An Bord Altranais, 2009). Nurses most realise the importance of patients participation in their care and strive to uphold it as a principle of person centred care, ‘’Lack of time and/or restrictions on patients choice and involvement, was listed as the number 1 factor to hinder quality nursing care’’ (An Bord Altranais, 2009). As nurses it is our responsibility to take the time to overcome communication barriers, for example, a hearing or speech deficit. The nurse can opt to use non-verbal communication to facilitate the decision making process for the patient. Patients are entitled to information about every aspect of their care and should be frequently updated. Information about management and prevention of conditions, procedures, assessments and investigations ,diagnosis, treatment, follow on care, referrals and services available to patients( i.e. health, social) should all be disclosed to patient (Department of Health,2001). If they
The art of human caring is one of the most essential parts of the nursing profession. Caring is not something that you learn to do, but something that is within you. In nursing, it is important to know what kind of nurse you want to be as well as the care you intend to provide to your patients. The patient is the center of nursing, and it is your responsibility to make sure they are receiving the best care that they can receive. One of the most important things is to be able to set aside personal beliefs and morals in order to provide patient centered care. The way that you approach and care for a patient is either going to make or break the effect of the care you will be implementing to the patient.
This is assists and promotes the use of human rights practice in work within delivery of care services, particularly within the NHS. It encourages fairness, respect, equality, dignity and autonomy.
I would like to start by defining what’s meant by person centred and coordinated care. Person Centred has various definitions yet not one that’s universally accepted. Debra De Silva in her review for The Health Foundation describes it as supporting “people to make informed decisions about, and to successfully manage, their own health and care, yet able to make informed decisions and choose when to invite others to act on their behalf” (2014, pg. 2). It essentially means that the care given places the patient in control and everything else is built around that. Professor Don Berwick sums it up as “the experience of transparency, individualisation, recognition, respect, dignity, and choice in all matters, without exception, related to one’s
To begin with the person is the centre of the plan, to be consulted with and their views must always come first: It should include all aspects of their care, and every professional should work together to provide it. (Leathard 2000) Autonomy refers to an individuals’ ability to come to his or her own decisions and requires nurses to respect the choices patients make concerning their own lives (Hendrick 2000).However Gillon Argues that the principle respect for autonomy may need some restriction, otherwise we may be morally obliged to respect an autonomous course of action with unthinkable consequences.( Gillon 1986) Every human being has an intrinsic value, they all have a right to well being, to self-fulfilment and to as much control over their own lives as is consistent with others (British Association of Social Workers 2002).Professional Judgement and patient preference cannot be suspended if practice is to be safe and effective rather than routine(DOH 2005) Alex had to attend this session as it was within his Timetable, how could it have been effective?, he was unhappy and

This essay aims to describe briefly what is meant by patient-centred care. It will also focus and expand on two key aspects of patient dignity - making choices and confidentiality. Patient-centred care (PCC) is an extensively used model in the current healthcare system (Pelzang 2010:12). PCC is interpreted as looking at the whole person and considering their individual values and needs in relation to their healthcare. By implementing a PCC approach it ensures that the person is at the very centre of any plans that are made and has a dynamic role in the decision making process (Pelzang 2010:12).
Person-centred care is the “Mutually beneficial partnerships between patients, their families, and those delivering healthcare services which respect individual needs and values which demonstrate compassion, continuity, clear communication, and shared decision making” (The Scottish government 2010).
