Implementation of patient-centred care: which organizational determinants matter?
23rd April 2019
Health and social care systems, organisations and providers are under pressure to organise care around patients’ needs with constrained resources. Therefore, barriers must be addressed to implement patient-centred care (PCC) successfully. This study conducted by Kira I. Hower et al. examines the determinants of PCC implementation from decision makers’ perspectives and emphasizes the crucial role of several determinants at the organisational inner setting and the individual level. The results provide possible starting points for initiating the tailoring of interventions and implementation strategies towards more patient-centredness.
