Person-Centred Care Training

Individualised person centred care training and planning originated in the 1940s and proposed taking a holistic view of service users in care settings. This means getting to know the person and then tailoring their care as much as possible to meet their specific needs. Person centred care is now a key principle outlined in current legislation and it plays an important part in the standards that they set out which must be followed by all care professionals working in this country.

The Health and Social Care Act 2008 details what providers must do to ensure every person received the most appropriate level of person centred care based on full assessments of their wants and needs.  Care providers have an obligation to make reasonable adjustments to provide support and help patients make informed decisions about any treatment or care.  They must also consider the patients ability and capability to agree to their care plan.  Wherever possible, patients must be involved in managing their care options and treatment.

Care providers also have a legal responsibility to ensure that anyone acting on behalf of must be legally authorised to do so.  If a third party is acting on a patients behalf, where the patient has not got the ability to do so, any treatment plans must work inside the framework of the Mental Capacity Act, 2005 (Mental Capacity Training Course).

Individualised Person Centred Care: “It ensures services treat people with dignity and are personalised to their needs, and are based on a single system-wide assessment of the needs of the whole population and it gives citizens greater choice and control of services and support, including encouraging the use of a personal budget for health and social care.”  taken from Local Government Association website
