According to the Institute of Medicine, patient or person-centered care is defined as “providing care that is respectful of, and responsive to, individual patient preferences, needs and values, ensuring that patient values guide all clinical decisions.” It has been demonstrated that patients and families who are equipped, enabled, empowered, and engaged regarding their care have increased adherence to treatment recommendations, better clinical outcomes, and healthier lifestyle choices. To become a person-centric healthcare provider, professionals will need to balance the most appropriate clinical outcomes alongside a person’s personal circumstances, resources, preferences, and goals. During this presentation components of person-centered care and emerging evidence related to shared decision making, patient activation and engagement, self-management, and coordinated and integrated care transitions with be discussed.
