The aim was to illuminate how nurses experience person-centred care planning using video conferencing upon hospital discharge of frail older persons. This study provides valuable insights into challenges associated with care planning via video conferencing. The meeting format, that is video conferencing, is perceived as a barrier that makes the interaction challenging. Shortcomings in video technology make a person-centred approach difficult. The person-centred approach is also difficult for nurses to maintain when the older person or relatives are not involved in the planning.
