'Person-centred care from the inside out' with Glenda Gorrie PART 1

In early 2019 Glenda Gorrie was looking forward to the next stage of her life, having 'retired' from full-time work at the end of 2018.

What she didn't expect was to be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. 

In this two-part conversation, we roam around her experience of person-centred care through the lens of Glenda's long clinical and policy-making experience with improving healthcare safety and quality.

Part 1 describes Glenda's early encounters with her care and treatment 'wrapped in person-centredness' that didn't last quite as long as she'd hoped! We discuss how organisational structures and systems can be a barrier to person-centred care, and how it's not only clinicians we need to be person-centred.  Lots of small tips and observations that add up to big and important messages about what's really important to the patient - and how you can find out more about what your consumers really want from your service.
