Person centred care

Person-centred care is globally recognised as the gold standard approach to healthcare delivery.

Partnering with patients in their own care is an important pillar of person-centred care. St Vincent’s Lismore is committed to building strong and effective partnerships with patients, their carers and other care providers. We recognise that these partnerships build trust and mutual respect and through the sharing of knowledge best health outcomes are achieved.

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.
