This essay is an exploration of my own perceptions about person-centred and relationship-centred care directives from the positive and the negative perceptions of effectiveness felt from all stakeholders. Reflecting on my original thoughts relating to providing a person-centred care directive has not changed, it has only become firmer, especially with the addition of relationship-centred care. Person-centredness is the underpinning I received in my training as a counsellor, with one of my elective units being family and relationships. Therefore the inclusion of relationship-centred care seems logical as people do not live in isolation, as discussed by (Windle & Bennett, 2012) people do not travel through their life alone they interact with others and build learning relationships, and it is these relationships that can become the care relationship, especially if it is the person’s child or partner. When thinking about being person-centred and the core skills involved which additionally apply to relationship-centred care, it is unconditional positive regard holding the person in respect, empathy and congruence or authenticity. As (Fox , 2007) proposes the skills are used, whilst listening without judgement to the story and holding the person safely in their experience of their emotion. It is additionally suggested by (Corey, 2009, pp. 164-196) that person-centred theories in counselling are supported by very existential theories that deal with the here and now of people’s experience. In addition with the core skills such as valuing the relationship between the client and the counsellor or care provider, with respect, congruence, non-judgement, empathy, and a belief that the person themselves is the one with the answers.

Person centred practice is used to support individuals by doing things that people see when using health and social care services as equal. Person centred skills that are enforced to support individuals are used for several reasons, for example lives of individual’s that are supported are improving and are developing. This means by letting their family at the centre of their decisions and working alongside them to their best
A care relationship is special and requires skill, trust and understanding. This essay will elaborate how the quality of that relationship affects the quality of the care given and the experiences felt in receiving care. These different relationships will depend on the type of care given, who the care is given by and what sort of previous existing relationship there was to begin with. For a good care relationship to work it needs to follow the 5 K101 principles of care practice which are 'support people in maximising their potential','support people in having a voice and being heard','respect people's beliefs and preferences','support people's rights to appropriate services' and 'respect people's privacy and right to confidentiality'.(K101,Unit 4,p.183). If all of these needs are met a far exceptional quality of relationship between the carer and care receiver will be achieved.
The CPA is a care management process for people with mental health and social care needs, including managing associated risks. The CPA main elements are: Assessment, Care coordinator, Care planning, Review, Transfer and Discharge. The National Standard Framework for Mental Health introduced it to supply a framework for effective mental health care (DOH, 1999; DOH, 2008; Gamble, 2005). Under CPA, John may use an Advance statement to illustrate his personal preferences and what he would like to happen in regards to his personal and home life should they come to lack capacity. These are important mechanisms for safeguarding and promoting a patient’s interests and health. The CPA is grounded in values and principles that are central to personalisation brought about when in March 2008 ‘Refocusing the Care Programme Approach’ was issued. This updated guidance highl...
A positive care environment promotes person centred care, this means that service users are given individual care that is tailored in a way that allows them to live their lives fully. A positive care environment has four strands; these are therapeutic, organisational, physical and community. (Miller, J, 2015) (Gibb and Miller, 2007)
Two potential barriers to the Patient-Family Centered Care model are time and patient/family expectations. Nursing is a demanding job that is known for it's fast paced and often hectic environment. While caring for several patients at a time, it might be difficult to make time to discuss and involve patients and their family in all aspects of their care. This could lead to the patient/family feeling left out or even lead to fear about why information if being kept from them. To address this barrier I will set aside time to spend with each of my patients solely dedicated to discussion about the care they are receiving as well as provide an opportunity to voice questions and concerns.
The healthcare system is a vital part of every individual’s life, whether it affects them directly or indirectly. Therefore it is essential that their needs are met and that they are at the centre of each decision made towards their health. In order to achieve this, health care practitioners must be able to deliver person centred care. The NHS is the most used healthcare service in the UK and therefore healthcare practitioners in the NHS must be able to deliver person centred care to ensure all patients are at the heart of decisions made about their health.
In contemporary nursing practice, nurses need to integrate scientific knowledge and nursing theories prior to providing optimal health care. Nursing theories guide nurses to treat clients in a supportive and dignified manner through client centred approaches. However, it is challenge for nurses to practice client centred care in daily realities due to heavy workloads. In order to assist nurses to decrease the gap between ideal and real practice, Registered Nurses Association of Ontario (RNAO) develops Best Practice Guideline of Client-centred-care (Neligan, Grinspun, JonasSimpson, McConnell, Peter, Pilkington, et al., 2002). This guideline offers values and beliefs as foundation of client-centred care, and the core processes of client-centred care can facilitate provision of optimal nursing care. These four core processes of client-centred care include identifying concerns, making decisions, caring and service, and evaluating outcomes. According to RNAO (2006), ongoing dialogue with clients and self-reflection are essential for nurses to develop their nursing skills and knowledge on client-centred care. As a nursing student, I reflected on written transcripts of interactions between patients and me, so that I could gain insights into client-centred care for further improvement. Therefore, the purpose of this paper is to discuss importance of the core processes of client-centred care in nursing practice through identifying and critiquing blocks to conversation. Based on the guideline of RNAO (2006), respect, human dignity, clients are experts for their own lives, responsiveness and universal access will be elaborated in each core process of client-centre care as reflecting on three dialogues with patients.
This essay will explain what patient centred care is, how nurses use it in practice, the benefits of using it, and the barriers that need to be overcome to able to use it, and the key principles of patient centred care. It will explain how patient centred care enables nurses to communicate and engage with the patients in a more effective way, and how it helps understand the uniqueness of each patient, which helps professionals avoid ‘warehousing’ patients (treating them all the same). It will also demonstrate how this type of care can help maintain the dignity of patients when nurses carry out tasks such as personal care.
Good care practice is essential in Health and Social Care and should be delivered by competent skilled care workers. Care workers are required to follow the guidelines specified in the five principles of care practice. The five principles assist the care worker in maintaining a good standard of care, which supports and respects the service users’ rights to appropriate services (K101, Unit 8, P134).
When a client comes in for help they are coming in as individuals that have a multifaceted perspective that includes psychological, biological, cultural, social, financial, educational, vocational, and spiritual components (Woodside & McClam, 2015). All these components encompass life experiences that they have been through with family, friends, their health, school, work, their legal status, residency, their safety and security, their finances, their well- being, and their accomplishments (Woodside & McClam, 2015). The perspective are integrated with the individual which form the whole person (Woodside & McClam, 2015). The term the whole person is important in human services because when a client comes in they are not coming in with just a single problem and as human service professionals we have to look at the issue and address it as a whole instead of a single issue (Woodside & McClam, 2015). There may be underlying issues that do not come up ...
In this essay I will compare person-Centred counselling with cognitive-Behavioural counselling and their different approaches and why the counselling relationship is so important. There will be a brief outline of what Person Centred and Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy.
Working as a clinical social worker in the Washington, DC area with patients diagnosed with life-limiting illness such as, Huntington’s disease, Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis and Lou Gehrig ’s disease (ALS), has taught me to be dedicated to a person-centered approach to therapy with patients and their families. Person-centered care is a trend that has been building in the social work community over the last few years. And I had considered the idea of person-centered care as a decent and noble practice. I now wholeheartedly trust the patient as the most salient guide in developing their own treatment. My most valuable work with patients is to listen and learn from each one, and let them determine their goals. The person in person-centered
Firstly, Principles of support are very important and have to be applied in order to ensure that individuals are adequately cared for within the health and social care practice.
referred to as the recipient of care, this statement lacks true meaning; reducing person to a single machine-like object. They are first and foremost human beings whose care involves the whole individual. They exist within a matrix of family, caregivers, significant others, and communities. In my practice, human-centered care is central to the articulation of my personal nursing philosophy. It is one that treats the patient as an integrated individual of body, soul, and spirit, instead of simply treating their illness or health concerns in isolation. It requires me to stand in their shoes in order to convey an understanding of their situation. As such, they should not be reduced to simply generalizations, but should be cared for in their
