Integrating Person-Centered Care Principles into Academia

National University’s Department of Health and Human Services achieved Planetree Silver Recognition for Significant Advancement in Person-Centered Care in October 2017. National University is proud to be the first and only academic institution in the world to achieve a Planetree International recognition.

To attain this honor, National University integrated person-centered principles into the curriculum of each of its health care programs of study. In preparing the next generation of health care leaders, National University transformed the academic culture of its health science programs into a student-centric model, using person-centeredness as the conceptual framework to support all learning activities. Integrating these principles means students are able to gain knowledge and application of the principles throughout your coursework, preparing them to support a culture of person-centered care.

As a student, you will learn to:

  • Effectively interact with diverse populations
  • Function in inter-professional settings as team members including faculty, staff, students, patients, and community members
  • Collaborate to effect change
  • Serve on committees, build professional leadership skills, and the importance of letting your voice be heard
  • Make the connection between environment and the way it makes people feel
  • Be supportive and engaging of patients and colleagues
  • Recognize and address personal barriers to successful professional development and adoption of healthy behaviors
