Person-centred health and care

Person-centred health and care is an approach to care that consciously adopts the perspectives of individuals, families and communities, and sees them as participants as well as beneficiaries of trusted health systems that respond to their needs and preferences in humane and holistic ways. People-centred care requires that people have the education and support they need to make decisions and participate in their own care. It is organised around the health needs and expectations of people rather than diseases (WHO definition).[26] [26] Dantas, Carina; Tageo, Valentina (2020).
