graft-versus-host disease (GvHD) is a common complication after allogeneic haematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allo-SCT) and causes immunological rejection of host tissues, which can occur both acute or chronically. Approximately 40 - 80% of patients with the diagnosis of chronic GvHD (cGvHD) also develop ocular GvHD. For these patients, immediate and uncomplicated access to interdisciplinary patient-centred care is important. We performed this survey to improve understanding of the structure of p...
A system of clinical records accessible by both patients and their attending healthcare professionals facilitates continuity of care and patient-centred care, thereby improving clinical outcomes. The need for such a system has become greater as the proportion of patients with chronic non-communicable diseases (NCDs) requiring ongoing care increases. This is particularly true in low-income and middle-income countries where the burden of these diseases is greatest.
This opinion paper highlights the value which patients place on the delivery of a person-centred approach within dentistry. Excerpts from a qualitative interview are used to illustrate the level of importance afforded to the soft skills, as viewed through the eyes of a patient with experience of oral cancer. The role of the general dental practitioner in supporting patients with oral cancer is highlighted. Attention is drawn to the importance of the dentist-patient relationship and how this can support iden...

The movement to improve patient-centred care, combined with the development of user-friendly technology has led to the spread of electronic patient portals (EPP). Little research has examined the effects of providing patients with access to their laboratory results on their healthcare and health behaviours.
The aim of our study was to increase awareness of the relevance of the implemented programmes to inequity of access and inequality of health by analyzing the impact of a patient-centred strategy for multimorbid patients.
To develop a patient-centred outcome measure (PCOM) for use with children and young people accessing National Health Service (NHS) wheelchair and posture services. Identifying and addressing outcomes of most importance to young wheelchair users (≤ 18 years) will help services maximise the benefits achievable within available resources.
To explore patients' and healthcare professionals' experiences of patients' surgical pathways in a perioperative setting.
The AWMF and its medical societies perceive an increasing dominance of economic targets in the hospital health care sector, leading to impairment of patient care. While resource use in health care should be appropriate, efficient and fairly allocated, "economization" creates a burdensome situation for physicians, nurses and other health care professionals.The AMWF and the medical societies studied causes and developed measures for a scientific, patient-centred and resource-conscious medical care. Disincenti...
Although the involvement of patients in their care has been central to the concept of patient-centred care, patient engagement in the realms of health professional education, policy making, governance, research and healthcare improvement has been rapidly evolving in Canada in the past decade. The Canadian Foundation for Healthcare Improvement (CFHI) has supported healthcare organizations across Canada to meaningfully partner with patients in quality improvement and system redesign efforts. This article desc...
Substance use disorders are chronic conditions that require a multidimensional treatment approach. Despite ongoing efforts to diversify such treatments, evidence continues to illuminate modest rates of treatment engagement and perceived barriers to treatment. Patient-centred care (PCC) is one approach that may strengthen the responsiveness of treatments for people with problematic substance use. The aim of this scoping review is to explore how the principles of PCC have been implemented and operationalised ...
To describe the range and depth of perspectives and experiences of patients with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis to inform gaps in patient centred care.
Health systems are recommended to capture routine patient sociodemographic data as a key step in providing equitable person-centred care. However, collection of this information has the potential to cause harm, especially for vulnerable or potentially disadvantaged patients.
Woman-centred care is a philosophy for midwifery care management of the childbearing woman. There is no mutually recognised internalised way in midwifery to provide woman-centred care.
Historically, personalised medicine has been synonymous with pharmacogenomics and oncology. We argue for a new framework for personalised medicine analytics that capitalises on more detailed patient-level data and leverages recent advances in causal inference and machine learning tailored towards decision support applicable to critically ill patients. We discuss how advances in data technology and statistics are providing new opportunities for asking more targeted questions regarding patient treatment, and ...
To review published research into the staff and adult patient experience of person-centred practice in a 100% single-room environment in acute care.
This study assessed the effect of a question prompt sheet (QPS) on the oncologist-patient relationship as compared with a question listing (QL). In particular, the differences in difficulties perceived by the oncologist during the consultation and in the patient's experience of the therapeutic aspects of the relationship were assessed. A total of 324 patients with a recent diagnosis of early stage breast cancer were involved in the study. The results showed that 15.7% of patients were perceived as 'difficul...
The first contact for patients with obesity for any medical treatment or other issues is generally with General Practitioners (GPs). Therefore, given the complexity of the disease, continuing GPs' education on obesity management is essential. This article aims to provide obesity management guidelines specifically tailored to GPs, favouring a practical patient-centred approach. The focus is on GP communication and motivational interviewing as well as on therapeutic patient education. The new guidelines highl...
Patients undergoing complex ventral hernia repair (VHR) often present with significant medical comorbidities, the most prevalent of which is obesity. Although recent advancements in abdominal wall reconstruction techniques have provided the general hernia patient population with markedly improved recurrence and postoperative complication rates, many patients have been precluded from these procedures owing to excessive body mass index (BMI). In this study, we investigate the viability of complex ventral hern...
Keeping patients safe while they receive medical care is essential. Yet current systems designed to ensure patient safety are not enough, because medical error is the third leading cause of preventable deaths in the United States. Clinicians can partner with the patient to enhance patient safety. Pulse Center for Patient Safety proposes patient- and family-driven processes designed to improve a patient's chances of avoiding harm. This article discusses highlights of the role of patient safety through a gras...
The trend of an ageing and growing world population, particularly in developed countries, is expected to continue for decades to come causing an increase in demand for healthcare resources and services. Consequently, demand is growing faster than rises in funding. The UK government, in partnership with the European Commission's Vision for 2020, propose a paradigm shift towards the delivery of more patient-centred self-care interventions, facilitated by novel ubiquitous computer mediated reality technology a...
Costs associated with an ACS incident are most pronounced in the acute phase but are also considerably long after the initial hospitalisation, partly due to considerable productivity losses, which constitute a substantial part of the economic burden of the disease. Studies suggest that person-centred care may improve health-related quality of life and reduce the costs associated with the disease.
We study a self-organising neural network model of how visual representations in the primate dorsal visual pathway are transformed from an eye-centred to head-centred frame of reference. The model has previously been shown to robustly develop head-centred output neurons with a standard trace learning rule, but only under limited conditions. Specifically it fails when incorporating visual input neurons with monotonic gain modulation by eye-position. Since eye-centred neurons with monotonic gain modulation ar...
We investigated the perspectives of patients, relatives and health professionals on the drivers and barriers to patient involvement (PI) in the treatment of peritoneal carcinomatosis with cytoreductive surgery (CRS) and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC). During 2016-2017, individual and focus group interviews were conducted with purposively selected participants during CRS and HIPEC, supplemented by field observations. This material was analysed using meaning condensation (Kvale). Fifteen pa...
