Patient-centered care research

Patient-centered care research

The person-centred care research group is mostly interested in how to centre healthcare on people / patients. It includes 

  • Physicians;
  • Nurses;
  • Social scientists;
  • Patient-experts.
     

This research group is focusing on how to provide better care for common health problems presented in primary healthcare and to disseminate clinical research into everyday clinical practice.

This research group is using qualitative methods to understand patients’ experiences of illness. Their focus is on identifying patient-relevant outcomes that should be assessed in healthcare research and what are the minimal clinically important differences associated with such outcomes.

In the primary health care team, the methods we have used are as follows:

1 -Primary Studies

a) Quantitative: cluster trials, interrupted time series, cross-sectional descriptive studies with questionnaires, secondary analyses of administrative data;

b) Qualitative: grounded theory, phenomenological analysis.

2 - Secondary studies

a) Reviews: systematic reviews of clinical trials, scoping reviews;

b) Clinical guidelines: using GRADE method.
