Webinar: Putting person-centred care into practice – learning from experience (from the Health Foundation)
About this webinar
There’s a great deal of interest on person centred care. This webinar will examine what works in implementing shared decision making and self-management support – core components of person centred care – into mainstream health care services. The webinar will share the findings of a major research report that looks at the relationships between these various components of person-centred care and the empirical evidence. Drawing on the experience of eleven large scale innovation programmes in the UK, we will also look at what hinders and what helps putting programmes like these into practice.
