  • Description: Person-centered care has emerged as a gold standard for aged care delivery. Experts have posited that this approach includes seeing the patient as a person, focusing on the person’s strengths and capabilities, utilizing a bio-psychosocial perspective, and offering and respecting patient choices. As new organizational models offer the promise of improved quality of life for elders, there is growing international attention to the need to understand the measures, strategies, and organizational supports that promote the uptake and integration of a patient-centered philosophy. This symposium will offer four presentations that address this objective. The first presentation will address person-centered care in German shared-housing arrangements for people with dementia as an alternative non-residential care setting and investigates the relationship between care structures and quality of life. The second presentation will describe the organizational factors associated with person–centered care for elders in US hospitals. Next, a presentation will report on an oral care intervention for persons with dementia that evaluates emotional expression as an important (and innovative) person-centered, outcome measure in nursing homes. The final presentation will report on the Dutch “green farm” model as an alternative to nursing home care, describing outcomes with patient-centered measures. Finally, Dr. David Edvardsson will synthesize the research presentation findings, offer perspective on the conceptual similarities/dissimilarities across settings and geographies, and lead a discussion of future directions for policy and practice.
