Deinstitutionalistion and the movement of people with intellectual disabilities (ID) to the community have seen the emergence of care philosophies aimed at tailoring services to individuals' needs. Person-centred support has been widely advocated and considered synonymous of good care. it is usefult to investigate if day-to-day suppport provided by paid carers in the community is person-centred.
Bunn, F., Goodman, C., Russell, B, et al (2018) Supporting shared decision making for older people with multiple health and social care needs: a realist synthesis. BMC Geratrics 18 91): 165. To embed SDM in practice requires a radical shift from a biomedical focus to a more person-centred ethos. Service providers will need support to change their professional behaviour and to better organise and deliver services. Face to face interactions, permission and space to discuss options, and continuity of patient-professional relationships are key in supporting older people with complex needs to engage in SDM. Future research needs to focus on inter-professional approaches to SDM and how families and carers are involved.

Journal of Advanced Nursing, Publication ahead of print doi: 10.111/jan.13820 .

Disability and Rehabilitation 40(17): 2048-2055. To deliver client-centered care, physiotherapists need to identify the patients’ individual treatment goals. However, practical tools for involving patients in goal setting are lacking. The purpose of this study was to improve the frequently used Patient-Specific Complaints instrument in Dutch physiotherapy, and to develop it into a feasible method to improve physiotherapy goal setting
Radwin, LE., Cabral, HJ., Seibert, MN., et al (2018) Patient-Centred Care in Primary Care: Pilot Development and Psychometric Assessment. Journal of Nursing Care Quality July 24th ePub Ahead of Print. Nurse contributions to patient-centered care in primary care clinics are all but ignored in standard patient experience surveys. The purpose was to conduct a pilot study to develop and psychometrically assess a scale measuring nurses' and other providers' patient-centered care in Veteran Affairs primary care clinics. We developed a patient experience survey composed of original items and previous studies' items and scales. The survey was field tested online with patients who had a recent clinic appointment. The nonrandom analytic sample comprised 221 patients.
