Person-centred care as an evolving field of research: A mixed-methods systematic review project
This project aims to provide an overview of the international research conducted pertaining to person-centred care (PCC). The project also includes more closely exploring the features of the research conducted and of the knowledge generated. The amount of research on PCC have increased considerably during the last couple of years. Various terms (e.g. person-centred, patient-centred, client-centred etc) are being used in the literature. This makes systematic searches challenging and the research field difficult to overview.
The project entails; 1) Developing and conducting comprehensive literature searches in electronic databases, 2) Developing and testing a statistical predictive classification method to identify records and 3) Synthesis and reporting of findings in several studies including a scoping review presenting a map of the field
