Creating a culture of person-centredness for nurses and midwives
Evidence shows that staff need to experience person-centredness in their workplace every day to be person-centred with others.
By using creative and cognitive approaches to learning and development, individuals and teams can explore their workplace culture and what person-centredness means for them and their service.
This enables a deeper understanding of the patterns in practice that enable or inhibit person-centred workplaces and practices and transforms practice for nurses and midwives.
