1.1 Explain how and why person-centred values must influence all aspects of health and adult care work

Person-centred values involve placing the individual at the centre of all care and support and treating them with respect and dignity. They are based on principles such as choice, privacy, independence, partnership working between those involved in providing services to individuals and empowerment of people to make decisions about their own lives and rights.

These values must influence all aspects of health and adult care work because it is essential for good quality person-centred practice, which places emphasis on taking into account an individual’s views, respecting diversity, helping service users have control over their lives through increased decision-making power, encouraging participation by involving service user’s family where appropriate, being aware that each person has unique needs that should be met in a sensitive way according to his/her specific circumstances, and creating meaningful relationships between provider and recipient while showing empathy towards him or her.

All these factors contribute towards improved outcomes across physical health interventions like healthcare treatments but also mental well-being and emotional support for individuals in care settings. Person-centred values ensure that service users receive the right level of support, respect and dignity throughout their journey as they transition through different levels of health and social care services while also enabling providers to adapt their approach according to individual needs.
