Person centred care

St Vincent’s Lismore is committed to building strong and effective partnerships with patients, their carers and other care providers that may be involved as this leads to positive consumer experiences and higher quality health care and outcomes.  We encourage patients, family and/or carers in partnership with healthcare professionals at St Vincent’s Lismore, to be involved in making decisions about their own health care.

At St Vincent’s Lismore, we are respectful of, and responsive to the preferences, needs and values of patients, consumers and the community, with dimensions including respect, emotional support, physical comfort, information and communication, continuity and transition, coordination of care, involvement of family and carers, and access to care.
