Sharing Patient Stories -Learning and Sharing from Excellent Integrated Care

Learning and Sharing from Excellent Integrated Care

I am very fortunate to have benefited from excellent care when treated for breast cancer.   I decided to write about my experience as a way of recognising and celebrating good practice and also thanking all those concerned.  

 I called my article “One of the Team” as I was fully informed and involved in all decisions at every step, and made to feel part of the team.   I was impressed with how well everyone worked together, and how much compassion was shown to me.  I reflected on my experience from my perspective as someone who researches and manages health services, and as someone who has a special interest in integrated care.   It was fantastic to witness integrated person-centred care in action.   Thankfully my treatment was successful and I am in recovery.

My article has been published in the Journal of Integrated Care.
