How Client’s Values Are Used to Provide Framework of Care
One of the most important things to remember when providing care for an individual is to listen. Being a patient advocate means that not only are you providing care, but you are also keeping the patient and their family involved in the care. Client centered care is an approach that values the patient as a whole and not just focusing on the health issues that needs to be addressed. Communication is key because it gives the opportunity for the patient to voice their concerns and to state what makes them comfortable which gives them autonomy. In order to have a proper plan that will deliver positive outcomes there needs to be exchange of dialogue between the patient and the healthcare provider, this will aide in creating the best plan of care. The values and beliefs of the patient need to be acknowledged because it can make the process of care more satisfying. When healthcare professionals are culturally competent it provides building blocks to create a plan of care that will be of great quality. This means that the provider will take into consideration that patient’s values and beliefs when deciding what treatments meet that needs (Henderson, Horne, Hills, & Kendall, 2018).
