Evaluate the use of care plans in applying person centred values

Care plans are very important for us to deliver individualised care. It informs us how care should be delivered to an individual according to person centred way. Care plans are comprised of many parts including short biography, medical history, mental capacity assessment, mobility plan, wishes, choices and risk assessment etc. It helps us to understand what level of support an individual needs and how should it be delivered. We can find out an individual’s wishes, choices and preferences from the care plan. Care plan also informs us whether any other factors (such as risk, safety and medical condition) will prevent us from applying person centred values. Few examples of how to use care plan in applying person centred values are describe here in below-
  • Personal Biography: We can derive personal information from this part including preferred name to be called, profession, birthday, activities and interests. It can help us to support individuality, dignity and choices.
  • Medical History: Medical history provides us information about an individual’s past and present diagnosis, which can restrict over personal choices.
  • Mobility Care Plan: It can help us to find out about an individual’s mobility and best way to support an individual’s independence.
  • Nutritional Care Plan: Nutritional care plan informs us what an individual likes to eat and drink which helps us to support an individual’s wishes and choices.
