Person Centred Thinking

What is a person-centered thinking?
It is a set of seven practical skills and tools used to personalize health, education and social care services. They can be used with people you support, patients or children, and also with colleagues, teams and in organizations. They help us to deliver personalized support by guiding us through the discovery of what is important to a person; how to best support them; the way they communicate and make decisions; and how to move to outcomes and action.
