IntroductionPatient‐centred care (PCC) is an essential component of safe and quality health care . The UK Health Foundation describes PCC as care that affords people dignity, respect and compassion, and offers coordinated, personalised and enabling care . A similar definition has been presented by the Institute of Medicine . PCC dimensions include exploring patients' biopsychosocial context, having positive clinician–patient relationships, practising patient‐centred communication, involving patients in decision‐making, and individualising care to meet patients' unique needs and preferences . However, there is an opportunity to enhance understanding of PCC by including patients' perspectives .The many important benefits of PCC provide a strong rationale for health professionals to adopt patient‐centred approaches to practice. For patients, PCC practises are associated with increased satisfaction with and engagement in care , increased quality of life, competence and autonomy , reduced symptom burden, improved functional capacity , improved clinical outcomes and reduced length of stay in hospital . Benefits to healthcare systems and organisations include reduced healthcare costs and increased healthcare effectiveness .A patient‐centred approach has been advocated for by various governments and international health organisations . However, evidence suggests there are numerous barriers to adopting PCC. These barriers include poor attitudes and beliefs of
