What is people-centred care?



around the world people are living longer but often with multiple diseases and conditions that require care over many years and unfortunately too many people are not informed or consulted in the care they receive in some countries only one in three people have the risks of their treatment explained to them one in five people have at least one unnecessary test and up to 40% of our spending is wasted due to inefficient health care should not be like this remember people leave the dare condition 24/7 not only when they seek care that's why people centered care is so important people centred care means ensuring the health services are tailored to people need and are provided in partnership with them rather than simply given to them it means care where people families and communities are respected informed engaged supported and treated with dignity and compassion people centered care can have lasting benefit it improves the trust experience and outcomes people have fun care the confidence and job satisfaction of health professionals and the quality and efficiency of health system people centered care can increase access to health services and reduce unnecessary useful services ultimately it means people get the right care at the right time and in the right but too often this type of care is not standard practice implementing people centered care requires fundamental changes in our approach to health care it means rethinking how health services are organized managed and delivered it means shifting away from asking what is the matter with you – what matters to you around the world the wild health organization is working with countries to design health systems that put people and then at the center of care because that's the health care that everyone deserves
