As AHPs, understanding the lived experiences of our clients and patients equips us with holistic insights, enriching our diagnostic precision and treatment personalisation. This week, we’re looking at the client experience, speaking with two people about their experiences of patient-centred care.
The concept of patient-centred care dovetails with our previous newsletter on Patient & Public Involvement in Research (PPI).
