- Oxford University Press
Person-centred care emphasizes compassion and dignity, is well-coordinated and respects individual needs and preferences. Advance care planning helps to facilitate person-centred care by allowing people to have a say in decisions about their end of life care, as well as being associated with a range of person-centred outcomes. Economic evaluations of ACP have tended to focus on hospital cost savings. However, such studies are too limited and more comprehensive economic evaluations are needed, taking into account not just financial costs and savings, but also wider person-centred benefits. ACP has, as its primary purpose, the aim of making a person’s voice heard, even when that person can no longer speak for themselves directly. Terminology and legal frameworks vary.
