University launches master’s in patient-centred care


There are many terms in use by clincians, which use normal words, but still 'tend to baffle me': 'person-centred practice' is one of them. Shared decision-making is another, as is the extension of 'palliative' beyond the meaning 'non curative'. I sent an e-mail to Bill Lawson last week, after reading this piece, asking him whether person-centred practice fits in with a model of EoL behaviour which I'm trying to promote. No reply, so far - but not much elapsed time, either.
