Patient-Centered care has been the center of medical discussions regarding how to provide high quality healthcare. The Picker institute and Harvard Medical school aim to decipher the meaning of true patient-centered care through the eight principles.
“Patient-centered care is the practice of caring for patients (and their families) in ways that are meaningful and valuable to the individual patient. It includes listening to, informing and involving patients in their care. The IOM (Institute of Medicine) defines patient-centered care as: “Providing care that is respectful of, and responsive to, individual patient preferences, needs and values, and ensuring that patient values guide all clinical decisions.”” Via One View Health Care
