Person- and Family-Centred Care

Deliver health care that respects people’s values and preferences.

Person- and family-centred care is guided by the person’s values, strengths, ideas and preferences. It occurs in a respectful partnership that makes certain the personal choice and informed decision-making shape how care is planned and delivered. It focuses on the person and their self-defined family to the degree they choose

CCMI’s person- and family-centred care workshops provide participants with concepts to guide the development of person- and family-centred health care at individual, system, and community levels. Courses offer suggestions for shared language and tips for demonstrating skills for person- and family-centred health care.
