We are incredibly fortunate to be joined by not only Ass. Prof. Dr. Rachel Sommer, Head of People-Centered Health Care Research and Psychodermatology at University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf, but a surprise guest in leading Dermatologist Prof. Dr. Matthias Augustin, Director of the Institute for Health Services Research in Dermatology and Nursing of the same institution who discuss the vitally important work they both do in people-centered healthcare.
Person-centered healthcare (PCHC) is a holistic approach to healthcare that puts the patient's needs and preferences at the centre of care.
In PCHC, the patient is seen as an active partner in their own healthcare, involved in all aspects of their care, from setting goals to making decisions about their treatment. This approach has been shown to provide improved patient outcomes and quality of life.
We will explore the relevance of PCHC, especially in the context of mental health and dermatological conditions, discuss the benefits, how to implement it in practice, and current projects related to PCHC in dermatology.
