Person-centered care in (primary) care practice
What is needed for the effective application of person-centered care in (primary) care practice? And how do we do that where special interest is given to the influence of diversity on the provision of person-centered care? These questions play a key role in our new project together with Pharos, the Dutch Centre of Expertise on Health Disparities. This project, initiated by the National Health Care Institute, focuses on person-centered care that takes diversity among patients into account.

By performing a literature research, data from existing research will be analyzed and by conducting interviews with stakeholders and patients involved in person-centered care, insights into where we currently stand and how we can further improve the application of person-centered care will be gained.
