Education and learning for care staff

Person-centred care in practice (PCP)

Another way of utilizing our research is through implementation programmes which GPCC now tailor to different health care settings.

Developing person-centred health care represents a radical cultural change requiring profound cultural and structural change. The aim of the education programme PCP is to establish a person-centred approach which permeates a care setting’s entire operating process.

The approach rests on the three primary components of narrative, partnership and documentation.

The programme is based on evidence-based person-centred care knowledge and change management knowledge. Each programme is co-created with the individual setting. The programme aims to have effects both on a participant level and an organisational level. More information here.

• Enhanced understanding of what person-centred care means and how it can be carried out in practice.
• Ability to develop structured working methods for planning and implementing person-centred care for patients with different diagnosis and care needs, in a systematic way.
• Ability to establish a partnership with the patient/person and co-create health plans and other care planning documentation from a person-centred perspective.


• Achieve a consensus organizational vision for person-centred care.
• Identify facilitators and barriers to the implementation of person-centred care.
• Create a sustainability plan for continued implementation.


Changes occur at all levels of the organization

The programme is structured in such a way that the change takes place on three levels simultaneously: at management level, amongst strategically selected change agents and amongst all employees.
