    Person- and people-centred healthcare (PPCHC) is not merely a clinical concept. It is a whole philosophy and culture of care that drives a complex healthcare system. It includes a range of concepts including a holistic perspective of health, functioning and wellbeing, shared decision-making and empowerment, co-produced and integrated care, context and complexity. While we can learn from countries and sub-systems that have adopted a PPCHC approach the importance of context means that Australia will need to develop its own strategies and roadmap in moving towards person- and people-centred healthcare.
