Person and whānau centred care is collaborative healthcare focused on meeting the needs, values, and desired outcomes of individuals and whānau.
The PNZ Professional Development Committee has developed a proposed model of Person and Whānau Centred Care for physiotherapy in Aotearoa New Zealand.
The aim of the model is to support and enhance the physiotherapy profession. The model highlights how physiotherapists can provide care that meets consumer needs and improves health outcomes. Physiotherapists will be able to use the guidance provided in this model to plan their professional development, and enhance their professional practice.
The proposed model is now ready for feedback from a wide range of stakeholders, including consumers, consumer representatives, physiotherapists, and those from health policy, management and regulation fields. You are invited to provide feedback. Your views will let us know whether the model feels right, looks good, and is fit for purpose.
Please review the Person and Whānau Centred Care document that describes the proposed model, and provide feedback via the online survey.
This consultation closes on Wednesday 6 June 2018.
