Person-centered care is much talked about these days and we have a number of sessions on the topic at the IAHSA 8th International Conference in London in July.

Help the Aged, a consumer-focused charity in the UK and a member of IAHSA’s organizing committee, recently published a paper entitled Personalisation in Social Care, providing a good overview of the evolution and current practices in France, Germany, the Czech Republic and the Netherlands.   The paper was written to help provide a blueprint for the UK to achieve goals of adapting these principles. hre
