WHO: What is people-centred care?

Globally, 1 in 20 people still lacks access to essential health services that could be delivered at a local clinic instead of a hospital. And where services are accessible, they are often fragmented and of poor quality. WHO is supporting countries to progress towards universal health coverage by designing health systems around the needs of people instead of diseases and health institutions, so that everyone gets the right care, at the right time, in the right place.

Care during and beyond the COVID-19 Crisis: Workforce Capacity and Capability

Health and care workers are our greatest asset, working alongside family carers, community partners and local networks of support. However, without reforms, sustaining the workforce is also one of our greatest challenges. Core competencies for integrated care are highly relational: patient advocacy, communication, interdisciplinary working, people-centred care, and continuous learning. Leading and managing transformational change is a collective responsibility and sustainable improvements will only take place if a flexible approach to driving the change is embedded. Enabling individuals and the system to be their own change agents will create an environment that can effectively respond to the continuous evolution of communities and populations alongside being able to harness the potential of innovations and new ways of working. The current pandemic has stretched our workforce beyond what we could have imagined. They have stepped up by extending scope of practice, blurring roles to support each other, and rapidly acquiring new caring ...

Effective implementation approaches for healthy ageing interventions for older people: A rapid review

Given the advanced demographic transition in the world, seeking healthy aging is an imperative task. In this review, strategies that favor a better quality of life for the elderly are shown, including the interaction of different levels of care (intra and extra system). All of this results in better global health indicators for the elderly population, which in turn translates into less need for care by the system.

mHealth for Integrated People-Centred Health Services in the Western Pacific: A Systematic Review

The global move towards achieving Universal Health Coverage (UHC) and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) requires a fundamental shift towards integrated healthcare systems. This vision of ‘Integrated care’ has been defined as a “coherent set of methods and models on the funding, administrative, organisational, service delivery and clinical levels designed to create connectivity, alignment and collaboration within and between the cure and care sectors.

Digital Health includes the use of mobile health (mHealth) applications, social media and health information systems and data. With the Internet of Things (IoT), it improves the data flow and interface between self-care, home-based services, primary care, ambulatory care, outreach services, and hospital-based curative and palliative services

This review analized how mobile health (mHealth) to support integrated people-centred health services has been implemented and evaluated in the World Health Organization (WHO) Western Pacific Region (WPR).

Disrupting health inequity and injustice through partnership

There’s no doubt about it: globally, the COVID-19 pandemic has laid bare stark inequalities in the attainment and experience of good health and wellbeing, in the acute phase of the crisis and as we move into recovery. But the pandemic wasn’t the first crisis to render inequality and injustice visible, and it won’t be the last.  This is inequality and injustice that people working across the Australian health, legal, social and community services landscape know all too well.

Both public health and access to justice literature point to the conditions in which we are born and live as key determinants of our ability to enjoy health equity and justice. In the context of the pandemic, they are conditions that rely on people enjoying access to stable, safe and affordable housing; adequate employment, income and social security; freedom from violence, whether in the home, on the street or ...

A Cross-European Study of Informal Carers’ Needs in the Context of Caring for Older People, and their Experiences with Professionals Working in Integrated Care Settings

Informal carers are increasingly relied on for support by older people and the health and social care systems that serve them. It is therefore important that health and social care professionals are knowledgeable about and responsive to informal carers’ needs.

This study explores informal carers’ own needs within the context of caregiving; and examines, from the informal carers’ perspective, the extent to which professionals assess, understand and are responsive to informal carers’ needs.

Global Competency and Outcomes Framework for Universal Health Coverage

The goal of this Global Competency and Outcomes Framework for UHC is to advance improvements in health and progress towards UHC through aligning health worker education approaches with population health needs and health system demands. More specifically, the primary objective of this document is to provide guidance for the specification of pre-service and in-service competency-based education outcomes for health workers, which in turn inform the development of relevant curricula, learning activities and assessment approaches. Its main target audience is health workforce educators, but it can be of relevance also for licensing and regulatory authorities and health service and facility managers. With this framework, WHO sets out its recommended approach to competency-based health worker education outcomes; in so doing, it also provides conceptual and terminological clarity.

The Global Competency and Outcomes Framework for Universal Health Coverage identifies the health worker competencies towards the achievement of UHC organized within six domains: people-centredness ...

Developing an interprofessional people-centred care model for home-living older people with multimorbidities in a primary care health centre: A community-based study

The ageing population with multiple conditions and complex health needs has forced healthcare systems to rethink the optimal way of delivering services. Instead of trying to manage numerous diseases in a siloed approach, the emphasis should be on people-centred practice, in which healthcare services are tailored to people's needs and provided in partnership with them. 

The aim was to develop an interprofessional people-centred care model (PCCM), including the contribution of a clinically trained pharmacist for home-living multimorbid older people in primary care.
