This module will develop your knowledge and skills in planning care in partnership with people in order to ensure that care is person centred and empowering. Throughout the module your learning will focus on the skills needed to respond positively to people who are at particular risk of marginalisation across the lifespan.
Aims and Objectives
Having successfully completed this module you will be able to:
- Examine and apply ethical and legal principles which underpin collaborative and person-centred health care practice
- Critically examine how nurses plan and document nursing care that is person centred and responsive to peoples' risks, needs and preferences
- Critically evaluate the principles of partnership working with people and carers which support the planning and delivery of person centred care
- Debate the role of the nurse in delivering person-centred nursing care across a range of environments and healthcare settings.
