Practice Statement: Person Centred Approach

A person-centred approach is built on a continuous system of learning about, listening to and responding to people. A person-centred approach answers two key questions:

  1. Who are you and who are we in your life?
  2. What can we do together to achieve a better life for you now and in the future?

Practice Definition: Person Centred Approach

What would be observed in practice:

  • Each person is listened to and treated as an individual
  • The person’s feelings are always considered
  • A person’s needs are put first
  • Outcomes Plans are regularly consulted
  • There is understanding and respect for chosen ways of doing things
  • Support staff encourage each person to do what they’re able to, rather than taking over
  • Individual differences are viewed as positive and not as a ‘nuisance’
  • Following the person’s preferences, even if it’s not convenient or what you would choose
  • Support staff have knowledge on a person’s history, preferences, desires and needs. These things shape who the person is and affect the way a person should be supported, and knowledge may explain different reactions to certain types of situation or support

Discussion Questions

  1. Take a look at the free person-centred practice tools available on http://www.helensandersonassociates.co.uk/person-centred-practice/. Are there any there that might be useful in your service?
  2. Watch the video about the difference between person-centred and system-centred practice and read the article (or at the least the introduction) on A Person-Centred Approach to Risk. Where do you think our service lies on the spectrum (system vs person)? What can we do to enable more person-centred practices from our staff?
