New policy briefing on person-centred care in Europe by The Picker Institute


The Picker Institute has just released a policy briefing on person-centred care in Europe entitled ”Person-centred care in Europe: a cross-country comparison of health system performance, strategies and structures.”

The report gives an overview of different ways of working with person-centred care on a macro-level in Europe, focusing particularly on England, Italy, Spain, Germany and The Netherlands.

In the introductory chapter which addresses cost-effectiveness in person-centred care systems the report refers to, amongst others, a study by GPCC researchers Olsson et al. ”A cost-effectiveness study of a patient-centred integrated care pathway” from 2009.
