Scientific interest around person centred care continues to grow; yet another recognition for GPCC

Inger Ekman with Prize for Best Cited Article 2014

GPCC articles continue to be frequently cited and downloaded and Centre Director Inger Ekman receives another recognition.

For the third consecutive year the article ‘Person-centered care - Ready for prime time’, was the most cited article in European Journal of Cardiovascular Nursing. The number of citations had even doubled compared to the previous two years which reflects the growing scientific interest around person centred care. The article summarizes the GPCC definition of person centred care. Inger Ekman, will receive a recognition of this achievement later this year at the European Society of Cardiology Congress in Rome. (The Pictures shows Inger Ekman with the Award for Top Cited Article 2014 for the same article.)

Another manuscript by Kerstin Ulin and co-authors “Ulin K, Olsson LE, Wolf A, Ekman I. Person-centred care - An approach that improves the discharge process. “ was one of the most downloaded manuscripts from the same journal in 2015.
