Person-Centered Care (PCC)
Person-centered care is a healthcare approach where the patient is seen as an active participant in their own treatment, rather than just a passive recipient. This means that the patient works closely with their healthcare providers to plan, develop, and monitor their care. The goal is to ensure that the care provided aligns with the patient’s unique needs, values, and preferences. This approach is not just about the individual patient but also considers their family, context, and other significant factors. It’s about treating the person as a whole, not just their illness.
