Person-and Family-Centred Care (PFCC) refers to where clients, patients, residents, and their families work together with a regional health care provider to improve health care. In PFCC, the word person refers to clients, patients, and residents who use the services of Western Health.
PFCC is a philosophy of care that ensure the person and their families are equal partners in planning, developing, monitoring, and evaluating care to make sure it meets their needs. A philosophy of care is a framework of care goals and values (yours) to help you make the best choices . Solutions occur along a spectrum from less intervention to more technical approaches.
