Course Content

The term ‘patient centred care’ has been the cornerstone of nursing care for many years now. However, in recent times, this concept has been further explored and developed into a model of care that places emphasis on the patient even more.

With this, a deeper understanding of what patient centred care is and how one can practice within this approach is even more important for the clinical nurse.
