Development of a methodology for monitoring person-centred healthcare

The aim of the study was to develop and test questionnaires for health professionals and the general public to measure person-centred healthcare. Person-centred healthcare is a multifaceted concept with no single measurement instrument. Person-centred healthcare focuses on the individual as a whole, not on a single disease, diagnosis or healthcare system. It is important to involve the person and their relatives and to take into account the person’s decisions and preferences when providing health care services.
