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

Person-centred values must influence all aspects of health and adult care work to ensure that the care is tailored to the individual’s needs and preferences. Person-centred values put the person first, ensuring they are at the centre of their healthcare or social care journey.

Person-centred values should be embedded into every aspect of an organisation’s health or social care practice as it ensures people feel valued, respected and listened to. An emphasis on this value can also reduce feelings of anxiety for patients as it encourages them to take a proactive role in managing their condition, which helps improve patient satisfaction with the services received. This approach builds trust between professionals working with individuals, meaning services delivered are more likely seen through an empathetic lens rather than being rushed or personalised.

When planning support strategies, health/social care staff need to consider how different resources may empower individuals, such as enabling people to access food banks if necessary and other activities available within local communities so that their well-being can be improved. Practitioners should also work with individuals to help them set realistic goals and facilitate collaboration amongst other relevant organisations/professionals to meet the needs of the person they are supporting.

Person-centred values promote choice, respect and dignity in all aspects of healthcare or social care, regardless of age, ethnicity or condition. It is essential for practitioners to ensure that people have a say about decisions which affect them as it encourages active participation when working together, creating an atmosphere where individuals feel supported rather than judged or patronised during this process.

Person-centred values must influence all aspects of health and adult care work as it ensures personalised support plans are tailored to an individual’s needs while upholding fundamental principles such as choice, respect and dignity throughout every interaction within healthcare settings.
