Videos – Experts explain patient-centred care & why it's crucial people are not only included in their own health care decisions, but put at the centre of their healthcare treatment. A webinar explores the rationale for involving patients in their own safety, as well as possible barriers to this concept.

He describes how it is lost when people are treated as if they're all the same rather than as individuals, becoming less involved in decisions about their own care.
