Person-centredness in nursing strategy and policy

Chapter


Abstract


  • There has been significant work in better managing health-care services as costs in service delivery escalate due to advances in science and technology, an ageing population, and new and emerging diseases requiring increased access to health care. This has occurred without the expected reciprocal increase in quality and safety of care. In addition it has been recognised that the traditional approaches to health-care planning and delivery do not necessarily meet the needs of consumers, are often fragmented, result in waste within the health-care system and

    do not reflect best practice.
