RCGP Person-Centred Care Toolkit
Published: 12 December, 2018
Person-centred care provides care that responds to individual personal preferences, needs and values and assures that what matters most to the person guides clinical decisions. It looks to build upon strengths, resources and skills that an individual, their carers, family and communities have in order to enable and empower people. It provides care which does things ‘with’ people rather than ‘to’ or ‘for’ them.
The RCGP Person-Centred Care Toolkit, developed with NHS England, seeks to support GPs and primary care teams deliver person-centred care. It brings together key tools including social prescribing, collaborative care and support planning, shared decision making and health coaching.
