Person and whānau centred care is healthcare that focuses on what you and your whānau need, value, and want to achieve.
The PNZ Professional Development Committee has developed a model of Person and Whānau Centred Care for physiotherapy in Aotearoa New Zealand. This model highlights how physiotherapists can provide care that meets the needs of you and your whānau, and improves your health outcomes. Physiotherapists can use the model to plan their professional development, and to enhance their professional practice.
