Abstract

This article is a literature review of the definition, models and methods of implementation of patient-centred care (PCC). Modern healthcare systems are rapidly changing to adopt a more patient-centred approach to care. However, the implementation of PCC can be hampered by the lack of a clear definition and methods of measurement. It is increasingly important for healthcare providers to understand the core elements of PCC. This article examines the literature to carry out a concept analysis of PCC, including definition, concepts and theoretical perspectives.
