Person-centred care in the spotlight

The NSLHD Nursing and Midwifery Directorate hosted a one-day forum to discuss person-centred care activities, initiatives, and strategies.

NSLHD Chief Executive Anthony Schembri opened the event, which had been on a three-year hiatus due to the pandemic.

The day was an opportunity for nurses and midwives to showcase and share their work, which included innovations in providing safe, high-quality care and partnering with patients.

At its core, person-centred care is about empowering individuals and fostering a collaborative relationship between healthcare providers and recipients. 

Speakers at the event included Transitional Nurse Practitioner Katie Kelleway and her patient Brett Mace, who was in the Royal North Shore Hospital’s Intensive Care Unit for 147 days in 2023.

Katie discussed the nurse practitioner case management program and the benefits it had for Brett. Meanwhile, he spoke about his experience of being in the ICU and how the service achieved person-centred outcomes.
