AP-NORC: Examining Attitudes Toward Person-Centered Care

Person-centered care is an approach to health care and supportive services in which care is directed by the individual needing care and allows him or her to identify their goals, preferences, and desired outcomes in an effort to improve their overall quality of life. However, there is no single approach to providing person-centered care. As government agencies and health care providers work to design and integrate person-centered care into long-term care planning, understanding older adults’ attitudes toward different approaches is important for developing and communicating these concepts.
