Person-centred care is the idea that the healthcare professional shifts their focus from routine tasks and processes to the individual needs of the patients. It has been highlighted as the cornerstone of high quality care. But whilst few practitioners intend to work in a non-person-centred way, for reasons such as priorities, organisational policies, workplace culture and resources, a person-centred approach can be very difficult to achieve. This book provides a practice-focused exploration of how the ideas of person-centeredness can be developed and incorporated in to everyday practice: - It forms each chapter around an engaging case study, with examples from adult and child health, mental health, learning disabilities and many more. - It introduces the theoretical basis of person-centred care, including the benefits it has for working environments, staff and patients. - It demonstrates how meaningful practice development partnerships can be made with patients, including who to involve and how to involve them. - It takes the reader through the steps of developing a person-centred ethos- from encouraging people to participate in the development, to evaluating the progress and sustaining it in the long run. With clear and accessible guidance through the use of chapter overviews, key points, activities and web-based resources, this is an important book for anyone interested in developing a person-centred approach to care.

Compassion in Nursing

Compassion in Nursing

Compassion in nursing has become an issue of national attention in England; however, there has been a tendency for sensationalised reports to win out over analysis. This book explores the issues involved in more detail and depth.

Is nursing in England experiencing a fundamental moral crisis? A number of recent high-profile reports about the state of nursing care in English hospitals certainly add weight to this argument; however, although the intense media attention on the decline of compassion in nursing has highlighted some of the issues, it has neither explained the underlying causes nor signalled a realistic solution. In this timely and important book, a collection of expert authors with a wealth of academic and practice experience examine the multitude of areas that need to be understood, and issues that must be addressed, before the policy recommendations triggered by the latest furore can be realised. These include: • Policy perspectives on compassion • Analysis of the historical roots of the concept of compassion • Examination of compassion in a contemporary nursing context, including patients' perspectives • The organisation of services to deliver compassion • Approaches to supporting staff to provide compassionate care. Compassion in nursing has become an issue of national attention in England; however, there has been a tendency for sensationalised reports to win out over analysis. This book explores the issues involved in more detail and depth. It is an essential resource for nursing students, practising nurses and health service managers, and anyone else interested in creating a compassionate health service.
