Person-Centred Care Guideline

The Person-Centred Care (PCC) Guideline outlines a level of service that any person (i.e., patient, family member, carer) using adult oncology services in Ontario should expect to receive, namely PCC. The PCC guideline was endorsed in partnership with the PEBC and the guideline working group. The guidance was approved by an Expert Panel convened by the PCC Program to advise on behaviours and practices of PCC.

The PCC Guideline, approved by the Expert Panel, is available below, which includes reference to the original National Health Services (NHS) Guideline from which the PCC Guideline was adapted for the Ontario context.

The PEBC has a formal and standardized process to ensure the currency of each document (please see the PEBC Assessment & Review Protocol for more information). This process guides clinical experts to assess a document’s current status and relevance. A final status statement is added to the document when this review process is complete. The current status of each guidance document is noted beside the title and link as outlined below:

  • Documents listed as CURRENT are 3 years old or less, up-to-date, and can be used for decision making.
  • Documents listed as IN REVIEW are undergoing assessment for currency and relevance. The DSG/GDG has determined that it is still appropriate for this document to continue to be available while this updating process unfolds.
  • Documents that are listed as “FOR EDUCATION AND INFORMATION PURPOSES” are documents for which no further updates are planned and whose recommendations may no longer be consistent with recent evidence. They may be of educational, historical, clinical, or system interest.
