Understanding how to deliver effective, person-centred care is vital for a future career as a Nursing Associate. In this book, trainee nursing associates are introduced to the principles of person-centred care, with case studies from a variety of healthcare settings and guidance on caring for different patient groups, from acute care to long-term and palliative care. This allows TNAs to see how the theory can be directly applied to their daily practice, regardless of where they work. The book also covers key issues in relation to providing care, such as inclusivity, ethics, legal issues, and health inequalities.
