The aim of this book is to guide the reader through the areas to consider when thinking about person-centred practice. Now in its second edition, the book’s scope has been expanded to cover healthcare in non-hospital settings.

The book provides a good example of how nursing approaches are transferable to other healthcare disciplines.

Different areas of practice are described to illustrate how a person-centred approach can be integrated into practice. Reflection is even handed and provides an in-depth, practical way of considering person-centred support.

The authors do not suggest the subject is simple, but make clear that the key principles of person-centred care are worthy of consideration.
