Promoting Person-Centred Care for Older People

Chapter


Abstract


  • Older people, across the spectrum of life, experience socio-demographic changes that easily hinder the capacity of health and social care practitioners to promote person-centred care within this group. This chapter aims to share three case studies demonstrating the promotion of person-centred care for people with dementia in Taiwan, Germany and Australia. The case studies demonstrate interdisciplinary implementation of practice development projects by practitioners in medicine, nursing and occupational therapy in community and nursing home care settings. Claims, concerns and issues are used by facilitators to negotiate a shared interpretation among a wide range of stakeholder groups or to reach a consensus on constructions about workplace experiences. The focus on dementia demonstrated that even when working with a vulnerable population group, practitioners, service providers, non-governmental organisations and policymakers can work towards empowering service users and their family carers to achieve person-centred care experiences.
