Finding common ground: the role of integrative diagnosis and treatment planning as a pathway to person-centered care
Keywords:Common ground, diagnosis, diagnostic summary, formulation, person-centered care, shared decision making, treatment, treatment planning, understanding
AbstractShared understanding between the provider and the patient is central to person-centered integrative diagnosis. Establishing common ground is critical to shared decision-making and person-centered care. Following an assessment, a diagnostic summary or formulation should be developed and shared with the patient to establish a mutual understanding that can serve as the foundation for a person-centered treatment plan. However, many clinicians are at a loss as to how to create such a formulation; forms outlines and guidelines can be helpful, but cannot substitute for a genuine empathic connection and appreciation of the patient’s experience and life context. There are useful examples of how common-ground can support the creation of person-centered plans and improved outcomes.
