The Personalised Care Strategic Coproduction Group created an infographic to help everyone understand the ‘personalised care’ approach in health and social care. Personalised care is the current approach taken to the nature of the relationship between you and health and care professionals. It concerns holistic care so seeing you as a whole, providing you with explained options, and you choosing the plan with informed consent.
This is a shift from the paternalistic approach where the professional knows best so makes choices on your behalf with no explanation or choice. Please find the infographic explaining the difference between the two approaches below. Feel free to click on it to view an enlarged version.
