‘More care, less pathway: a review of the Liverpool care pathway’ (Neuberger et al, 2013). However the author considers pathways are an important component of person centred care if presented in the form of an a la carte rather than a set menu. Pathways can be used as a resource to talk through choices with patient. Pathways support practitioners and patients to navigate through the range of services that are available to meet individual needs and preferences. Within primary care and community services, this is frequently a challenge due to the sometimes short term nature of pilot projects that commence and do not continue following evaluation or services which close after a short period due to funding changes.
Tom Kitwood (1997) cited in (The Open University, 2017) supports the approach of seeing and treating people as individuals, he calls this ‘person-centred care’. This approach looks at the physical, social and psychological needs of the individual. Person-centred care encourages people to have more involvement in making decisions about their care so they get the support and service they need. There are three main types of long-term care settings such as residential care homes which offer different degrees of personal care, Nursing homes offer care which requires the skills of qualified nursing staff and long-stay hospitals which offer a more specialised medical care. (The Open University, 2017).

This model was chosen for its strengths in providing the nursing practitioner with a wide range of areas to engage families with. This is because the model acts as a template for both clinical and generalist practice and it allows nurses to expand their assessment questions within the different categories provided as they increase their skills in the practice of family care. It also allows the practitioner to choose which category is the most relevant to the particular client family resulting in advanced practice. Advanced practice is marked by the ability of the user to apply the model confidently as well as competently. However, on the downside, the model can become overwhelming when the nursing practitioner is beginning to use the model as they have to keep
Person-Centred Care aims to ensure that the older adult is an equal partner in their health care. Key components that ensure PCC is provided are the following: respect and holism power and empowerment choice and autonomy empathy and compassion. (Rcn.org.uk, 2015) A person-centred approach to nursing focuses on the individuals needs, wants, goals and desires so that they become central to the care and nursing process (OpenLearn, 2015). According to The Department of Health (State of Victoria, Australia), person-centred care is a philosophical approach to care, ensuring that service systems are developed in partnership with older people and/or their carers (Health.vic.gov.au, 2015).
The model allows health care professionals to reflect on experiences and find ways to improve their outcomes of different events. It not only looks at the situation but allows you to explore your feelings at the time of the event, as well as at the end of the reflective process. The model gives health care an opportunity to review their actions and explore what could have been improved with regards to their experiences (De Oliveira and Tuohy,
Individualised approach to care planning essay The care planning process is a fundamental part of nursing, Barrett et al (2012) emphasises the importance of the process by recognising it as a clinical skill that needs to be learnt and developed. Care planning enables information to be gathered, taking in to consideration an individual’s biological, psychological, sociocultural, environmental and politico economic status. These factors are incorporated in to the care planning process to enable an individualised care plan that meets the holistic needs of the individual (Doenges and Moorhouse, 2012). The aim of this assignment is to explain and explore an individual approach to care planning and how using a nursing process and nursing model collectively will provide a holistic approach to care.
