Thomson, Oliver P., Petty, Nicola and Moore, A. (2013) Reconsidering the patient-centeredness of osteopathy International Journal of Osteopathic Medicine, 16 (1). pp. 25-32. ISSN 1746-0689Full text not available from this repository.
The widespread use of the biopsychosocial model amongst various health professions, all of which claim to take a patient-centred approach to their practise, challenges what has been considered a unique and defining feature of osteopathy. This paper discusses the complexity of what is meant by patient-centeredness, and how it is practised and researched by other health professions. The assumption that osteopathy has always taken a patient-centred approach is questioned, and directions for further research are highlighted so that the profession can have a comprehensive working knowledge of its practise, thereby helping to define itself within the broad and competitive healthcare environment.
