“Exploring Implications of Patient-centered Care for Neurology” 


               Patient-centered care is an individualized approach to patient care. Understanding the patient as a whole person with individual preferences and needs, and situated in dynamic social contexts (including context of health care delivery) is a starting point for patient-centered care. Although partnership with health professionals is important, the particular patient is seen as guiding the care that she receives. As such, this approach entails shared control of consultations, decision-making strategies, recommendations, and plans of care that are all devised and acted upon in relation to the particular patient. In this lecture Dr Ells will introduce key concepts of patient-centered care, strategies for its use in therapeutic relationships as well as ways in which healthcare delivery organizations can be patient-centered.  She will lead a discussion about patient-centered care, its relevance for care of patients with neurological conditions, and implementations for further research and practice in neurology.
