Welcome to another episode of The Words Matter Podcast.
So we’ve reached the end of the CauseHealth Series, and in this final episode I’m speaking with Rani Lil Anjum, Matthew Low and Christine Price who share their reflections on the podcast series from the perspectives of philosopher, clinician and patient.
We also discuss some of the practical recommendations which appear in the final section of the book (here), and that are needed in order to re-situate person-centred healthcare within a new paradigm.
It has been a real privilege for me to be speak to each and every author of this ground-breaking resource (free to download here). Like so many of you, I’ve learnt so much personally from each of the conversations.
What has become clear to me during this series is that not only does CauseHealth offer novel a framework for understanding causation, but it also moves us to take a critical look at all of our assumptions around so many areas of healthcare practice, whether it be the nature of evidence, the role of clinical judgement, how patients and clinicians might relate to each other as well as broader issues of public health policy.
So in many ways, for me CauseHealth offers a bold formal theory of genuine person-centred care, which has explanatory power that reaches far, wide and deep into our healthcare practice, policy and our patients' lives.
