Editor's Choice

Person-centred care is sometimes referred to as an extension of “patient-centred” care. As healthcare providers we acknowledge the importance of considering the patients’ experience to help us better understand and implement person-centred approaches aimed at care for individuals focused on the patient and their problem, rather than their disease alone. In this issue of the JCN, the editorial entitled “Tell me, how do you define person-centredness?” explores the evolving definition of this concept to guide our nursing care. The editor’s choice article for this month’s issue (“The meaning of person-centred care in the perioperative nursing context from the patient’s perspective-an integrative review”) takes a closer look “person-centredness” in the context of the perioperative experience. The perspectives of patients in the perioperative setting provides implications for strategies nurses can use to support the patients’ trust and feelings of security in a very technological focused environment.
