Abstract

Irish policy has endorsed person-centred care (PCC) for over a decade. PCC is seen as integral to successful delivery of healthcare globally. It has been shown to advance concordance between care-provider and patient, improve health outcomes and increase satisfaction. Core to PCC is the therapeutic relationship, where the clinician needs to recognise the person as a human being with reason, will, feelings, and needs so as to engage with them actively. This requires developed empathetic communication skills. However, evidence indicates significant practice deficits. This is substantiated in results of the Irish national patient experience survey, where communication was cited as requiring significant improvement. Clinicians’ values, knowledge and interpersonal skills are necessary for PCC delivery, but so is a nuanced ability to engage in, and develop person-centric communication skills. This study explored how clinicians are prepared to deliver PCC through their qualification training. Internationally, PCC curricula have been developed for Health and Social Care Professional (HSCP), nursing and medical undergraduate programmes. The situation in Ireland is less clear.
