The routes in the Person-Centred Practice Framework seek to influence and enable the transformative processes of personal and professional development through engagement, facilitation and evaluation of person-centred teaching and learning approaches. It is designed to meet the professional needs of practitioners from all disciplines working in a variety of different health and social care settings.
The Framework is innovative and interactive, emphasising application of theory to your practice context. It will enable you to critically engage with, evaluate and synthesise the evidence and research to promote the development and enhancement of person-centred culture and practice. This develops a pro-active, transformative and reflective approach to meeting the public health and social needs of individuals, families, groups and populations.
The aim of the PgDip Person-Centred Practice (Health Visiting) is to enable you to develop deep and critical understandings of different sources of knowledge and research evidence that contribute to the health and wellbeing of children, young people, families and communities in a way that is consistent with the values of person-centredness and child and family centred care.
