This is an excellent text with clearly written content, which helps practitioners to develop patient-centred practices suitable for a modern health service

This is an excellent text with clearly written content, which helps practitioners to develop patient-centred practices suitable for a modern health service.

The theoretical concepts of practice development are explored, along with the initiation of a practice development culture that is achievable and sustainable in a constantly evolving environment.

Over 11 chapters, the reader is introduced to person-centred practice development methodology, the concept of person-centred care, the creation of a culture of learning, leadership strategies, and sharing new knowledge and ways of working.

The content gives the reader something to think about because it challenges practitioners to see the development of person-centred practice in a positive way, as opposed to activities that detract from the care they are giving.

It shows how developing practice requires changes in the way people work, and how people’s acceptance of change is influenced by their ability to work in the new way.

A thought-provoking book that would be a useful addition to any bookshelf.
