Therapeutic communication, hearing, visual and touching should be used (Smith, 2012, pp.5-7). The Health Foundation (2014) states that ‘Person-Centred Care show an important way to make the patient feel involved in their own care’. If the patient has control over their own body and mind, then they will have an understanding of what is happening to them. Person-centred care is in place for the patients, staff and families all to get involved in the planning, care and discharge. It involves compassion which is important in a nurse’s role as the patient enters unfamiliar territory. All staff needs to consider the patients respect and dignity is upheld, with closing curtains, covering up the patient and asking for consent to enter the patient’s bed space. Person-Centred Care was followed in the scenario. The Doctor and the nurses asked for the family to come in to discuss the care of the patient. The nurses communicated with a friend of the family because the patient’s partner also had a hearing impediment. Then they communicated with the patient and told her it was in her best interest if she allowed the staff to care for her. The leg began to weep through the dressing. It was over due to be changed. She still refused help. The student nurse who was helping the patient seemed to have a positive impact on her. Price (2006, p.50) states that the person centred care approach needs different frameworks

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)
At West View Nursing Home, the idea of person-centered care is drilled into each new staff member’s brain at their first interview and orientation. It is the principle that guides all of the work here, no matter if you are a janitor, social worker, nurse, dietician, etc. Some examples of the general principles associated with this type of intervention and care are that the needs of the client have priority and social services exist to benefit him or her, everyone has their own strengths and weaknesses, and not revoking people’s choice about their own behavior (Miller & Rollnick, 2013). No matter their health status or mental state, everyone is entitled to make their own decisions as much as possible, even if the social worker does not necessarily agree. The three main characteristics that a social worker demonstrated when utilizing the person-centered care theory are empathy, unconditional positive regard, and congruence/genuineness. He or she is expected to be objected and unbiased, come with experience to provide appropriate suggestions, and be able to accept that clients’ perspectives are true and best for them as a person (Walsh, 2014).
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 assignment will explore and critically evaluate the role of the registered nurse in the development of a plan of care that is patient centred. This will involve examining and critically analysing the chosen nursing model in a holistic assessment of the patient and the use of the nursing framework ASPIRE (Barrett, Wilson and Wollands, 2012).

It has, however, not been stated that the patient’s consent was sought before he was admitted into the mixed sex medical ward which violates Mr Jones right to be fully involved in decisions about his care (NMC Code, 2008).
Person-centred care is the “Mutually beneficial partnerships between patients, their families, and those delivering healthcare services which respect individual needs and values which demon-strate compassion, continuity, clear communication, and shared decision making” (The Scottish government 2010).
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).
Within this assignment a discussion based on how the nursing midwifery council (NMC) code of conduct relates to person centred care will be carried out. Firstly this assignment will describe person centred care and nursing care and comment on their importance within nursing practice. This will then lead into a discussion on NMC code of conduct and the purpose it serves for nurses, midwifes and an individual receiving care from wither of these professions. Furthermore this assignment will aim to examine case studies that have been based on person centred care or the lack of and discuss how the scenarios given within the case studies fit in with nursing care and the code of conduct and discuss how the code was broken if their seems to be a theme of non-person centred care throughout the case study.
Person centred care is a form of clinical practice where the patient is included in his/her treatment and care. Also, the needs of the patient are considered. The patient being referred in the case study is Mr. Parker, who is an aboriginal man diagnosed with acute myocardial infarction (AMI). It is a heart condition that takes place when blood flow or circulation from the heart is abruptly cut. Mr. Parker was brought to the ER after he collapsed at home as a result of acute chest pain.
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).
In this Assignment, we will be looking at and discussing how the Nursing Midwifery Council’s Code (NMC) can guide the provision of person centred nursing care. What is the NMC’s Code? NMC Code is a list of professional requirements that which the nurses and midwives needs to adhere in order to practice in United Kingdom. This Code also helps the nurses and midwives to maintain their professional standards throughout their career. The Code is divided into four important sections. The sections are Prioritise people, Practise effectively and Preserve safety and Promote professionalism and trust (NMC 2015).
Lucy, that was great that you were there to educate and advocate for your patient. Often I have witnessed illiterate individuals will just nod as if it appears the individual understand instructions. According to Prins and Mooney, illiterate individuals are more likely to have inadequate knowledge of disease management, unlikely to use preventive health services, and are at increased risk for poorer health status (Prins & Mooney, 2014). It is apparent that the patient and the family did not understand what comfort cares were and the patient’s rights to adequate treatment. I wonder if an interpreter was utilized during the health consultation with the patient and the patient’s family.
Patient Centred care, is an approach to healthcare which places the patients at the centre of their healthcare journey and makes the patient an essential and indispose-able asset in the healthcare system. Patient centred care is about a complete transparency between healthcare professionals and their patients to ensure that patients have a comprehensive understanding of the treatment they are undergoing and have a valued input in their healthcare treatment. Healthcare professionals that enact and utilise patient centred care effectively communicate with their patients to ensure the patient has a comprehensive understanding of their entire healthcare course (Levett-Jones, Gilligan, Outram, & Horton, 2014). The clarity provided through the effective communication means that the patient's safety is amplified as their cultural and phycological needs are accounted for and met. When a patient is subject to patient centred care, it maintains their dignity through the care process and evokes their preferences in their treatment which means that patients feel effectively communicated with and have a greater trust in their healthcare system (Levett-Jones, Macdonald-Wicks, & Oates,
According to the World Health Organization (WHO) (2005), patient-centred care allows the patient’s values, preferences, desires and knowledge to guide care for the chronic conditions that they live with. A shift in teaching from provider-centred to patient-centred care is a competency specifically recommended by numerous health care authorities and professional bodies (WHO, 2005). The purpose of this paper is to perform an in-depth analysis of patient-centred care, which is one specific competency outlined by the World Health Organization (2005) to effectively care for individuals with chronic conditions. This paper will use relevant nursing and health-related literature to discuss the core competency of patient-centred care and will elaborate on why patient-centred care is important when caring for clients with chronic illnesses. Lastly, this paper will discuss how patient-centred care can be applied to Mr. Benoit (Mr. B) and his family in their situation.
