|This action research project started in 2015 with the aim to achieve an overall sustainable hospital transition to person-centered care. In the first wave of change towards an overall hospital transition to person-centered care, hospital managers were invited to work-shops and discussions. Eight hospital units were nominated as pilot units. Specific facilitators/change leaders were educated in the philosophy of person-centered care. A learning network was created including the project managers, project unit managers and facilitators/change leaders. Based on the theory of person-centered care, and the importance of focusing soft skills and learning skills and not just technical skills, as well as experiences and reflections during this action research project, a general model for transition to person-centered care was developed. Steps included in the model: 1) Introduction; 2) Values linked to person-centered care; 3) Multidisciplinary teams including/involving patients and/or next of kin; 4) Communication skills, and in-depth knowledge about person-centered care, 5) Practical application of the person-centered approach into clinical practice.|
