This interactive timeline is a visual guide through the key events that have contributed to the move towards a more person-centred health service over the past 50 years (read instructions for using Prezis).
The focus is primarily on shared decision making and self-management support as these have been the Health Foundation’s main areas of focus, but it hopefully gives a flavour of some of the wider developments both in the UK and beyond.
The timeline shows an interesting evolution in person-centred care but it is clear that the journey is not yet complete. What do you think the main message is – how far we have come or how far do we still have to go? Have we missed any key events or milestones?
