Background: Person centred care is inherently integrated into palliative care as one of its cornerstones. Having developed from a pioneering grass route movement to an established organisational structure the culture of palliative care has become increasingly influenced by routine and the need for standardised practice. This has challenged the capacity to foster creative, flexible and dynamic approaches to care that put the person at the centre. McCormack and McCance’s Person Centred Practice Framework (2017) is a theoretical framework that addresses such limitations. Using this framework as an underpinning theory in our research we aimed to assess and develop a person centred culture in a hospice.
