An effective partnership recognises the expertise that patients bring to the medical encounter as well as the evidence base and medical judgement of the clinician and team. Patients are not told what to do but are engaged in shared decision making that respects their personal goals. For patients with chronic conditions, health coaching provides a framework for self-management support.Relevance to General Practice
The key changes for Patient-Centred Interactions are:
o Respect patient and family values and expressed needs.
o Encourage patients to expand their role in decision-making, health-related behaviours, and self-management.
o Communicate with patients in a culturally appropriate manner, in a language and at a level that the patient understands.
o Provide self-management support at every visit through goal setting and action planning.
o Obtain feedback from patients/family about their healthcare experience and use this information for quality improvement
