Abstract

In an era of health care that is driven by biological and technical advances, there is a need to safeguard the caring component of care, the humanistic part of care. With this in mind, the authors constructed a Patient-Centered Caring model consisting of three overlapping constructs: delivering customer service, understanding the illness experience, and providing trauma-informed care. These practices operate within an interprofessional competency context. The authors describe an interprofessional educational project focused on understanding the illness experience and providing trauma-informed care to faculty, staff, and administrators in an inpatient psychiatric setting. The authors discuss the project through a number of ethical lenses that may help explicate the ethics of patient-centered care and caring and can be useful in the development of interprofessional competence.
