Examine the concept of person-centred care
Long-term conditions cannot be cured, but they can be controlled with ongoing support from healthcare professionals. They have been described as the healthcare challenge of this century.
This program will explore how, by engaging in person-centred care, nurses will be able to use evidence-based practice to work with individuals, taking into account their own needs and wishes. By understanding a person’s life circumstances and health choices, nurses will be able to plan effective symptom relief, education and monitoring of long-term health conditions and those at risk of developing them.
