Person-centred care and communication

The goal of person-centred care is a meaningful life for the patient.

This research aims primarily to study and promote the care of patients and their close relatives based on each person’s unique needs and prerequisites. The learning and work of the healthcare staff and students is also studied.

The point of departure is that person-centred care and communication is able to improve caring processes and patient satisfaction, as a result of the care given. The group is interdisciplinary and includes researchers from the caring sciences, psychology and sociology.
