Focus on Person Centered Healthcare and Bioethics

Person centered healthcare is a way of thinking and doing things which have into account person needs, will, values, narratives, social and lifestyle circunstances. This implies new types of procedures, relationships and lawful questions. These issues will be presented and discussed against a bioethics perspective.
