(p.69) Chapter 4 Family-centred Care: Psychosocial Care for the Marginalized
Psychosocial Issues in Palliative Care

Philip J Larkin

Oxford University Press

This chapter recommends the adoption of the so-called family-centred care approach to provide psychosocial care for the marginalized. It explains that family-centred care offers an approach to the planning, delivery, and evaluation of healthcare that is governed by mutually beneficial partnerships between healthcare providers, patients, and families. It applies to patients of all ages and may be practised in any healthcare setting. The chapter also explores specific care groups where a growing body of evidence indicates that palliative care has been highlighted as a significant issue and describes the psychosocial dilemmas faced by this group of patients.

Keywords:   family-centred care, psychosocial care, families, palliative care, healthcare
