Principles of Personalised Care

Principles of Personalised Care

Summative Assessment task details and instructions

Personalised care promotes the nurse to consider the ‘person’ as opposed to the ‘patient’ (NHS England, 2019; Nursing and Midwifery Council [NMC], 2018). In doing so, you will need to use appropriate communication skills and interpersonal skills to support and enable people to make informed choices within their episodes of care. This assignment will centre around a person’s story of an episode of care. You will need to choose one story/experience and address the assessment criteria set out under ‘Assessment Criteria’. In week 8 at the ‘Service User and Carer Voices Day’ you will hear personal accounts from Service Users and Cares of their experiences, which you may want to also use.Here are some useful links containing stories you may want to consider.





To FULLY meet the assessment criteria, you need to:

·       Briefly summarise the persons episode of care and describe the importance of partnership working between the nurse and person in relation to personalised care and support planning.
