Its purpose is to develop effective workplace cultures that have embedded within them person centred processes, systems and ways of working. Skilled facilitators help frontline staff to get underneath the surface of daily routine, to critically reflect on the values and beliefs they hold about patient care. Teams are challenged to consider if the behaviours, systems and processes used in practice are consistent with person centred values and what needs to be changed. Develops evidence from practice, and implements evidence into practice. Achieves sustainable change through its focus on continuous learning in practice. PD is ‘micro-system’ oriented and context specific. PD works with individuals and teams to: • engage with a shared vision • create links with their own aspirations • translate complex organisational and strategic agendas into practice reality • make sense of complex forms of evidence • become clear about what constitutes person centred care. • move the energy that would otherwise have been expended in conflictual agendas and resistance towards shared agendas. • facilitate the system as a whole to re-engage with the untapped potential lying within the healthcare workforce and their patients. Practice Development (Garbett & McCormack, 2003) Person-centred Nursing Framework (McCormack & McCance 2010) The PCN Framework CARE ENVIRONMENT The context in which care is delivered CARE PROCESSES Delivering care through a range of activities PREREQUISITES Attributes of the nurse OUTCOMES Results of effective person-centred nursing Using a different lens to learn from practice? Use of the framework in practice To promote an understanding of personcentred care To analyse barriers to change As an aid for reflection To focus the implementation and evaluation of developments in practice To inform strategy Person-centredness and PD “Developing person-centredness is at the heart of practice development and despite much policy and strategic rhetoric, practice development continues to be the only methodology that has the development of person-centredness as its primary purpose and which recognises that personcentredness is not developed through one-off change events. Instead, it needs continuous reflective and critical relationships to be developed and sustained over time.” (McCormack 2008, p.161) Recommendations from the Francis Report The NHS and all who work for it must adopt and demonstrate a shared culture in which the patient is the priority in everything done. This requires: A common set of core values and standards shared throughout the system; Leadership at all levels from ward to the top of the Department of Health, committed to and capable of involving all staff with those values and standards; A system which recognises and applies the values of transparency, honesty and candour; Freely available, useful, reliable and full information on attainment of the values and standards; A tool or methodology such as a cultural barometer to measure the cultural health of all parts of the system.
