Kelly, R., Brown, D., McCance, T., Boomer, C. (2018) The experience of Person - Centred Practice in a 100% single-room environment in acute care settings - a narrative literature review Journal of Clinical Nursing 15 Dec 2018. This review focuses on empirical studies relating to person-centred practice in the single-room environment published in the last five years. While there is a significant body of work relating to person -centredness and the delivery of person -centred practice, and the impact of the environment on care delivery, there appears to be limited evidence linking person- centred practice, staff and patient experience and the single-room environment.

Symonds, J., Miles, C., Steel, M. Making person-centred assessments. Journal of Social Work 19 Feb 2019. This paper draws on interview data from 30 practitioners about their experiences of conducting social care assessments in England. Whilt there was widespread support for the principles of a person-centred approach, tensions emerged for practitioners in three ways: the way in which 'chat' was used to build a relationship or conduct the assessment, whether to conduct the assessment via a conversation or by following the sections on the agency form and the extent to which the assessor should involve and negotiate the contributions of family members.
