What is this article about?

Despite well-defined care pathways and referral processes, patients’ journeys are rarely linear and always unique. In the patient’s mind, they may often start well before an episode of care, and continue on after their discharge. The concept of the journey has implications for nurses at both a systemic and practice level and forms part of the current suite of patient-oriented approaches that also includes patient experience and patient engagement.

This is an interesting article, but whilst patient centred care is a theoretical basis for nursing practice, I often find in my own experience as a relative of a patient, that the patient is usually the last person to be considered by nursing staff when they are planning care. The true question is "How can we actively incorporate this crucial concept into the daily practice of nurses?"
