5 Measuring person centred care and an increase in ability to self-manage How? Looking for something that would measure how active a patient is in their own care A lot of measures assess the delivery of care components not the actual level of patient activation (e.g. Patient Assessment of Chronic Illness Care - PACIC) How could we measure and act on a patients level of activation to increase their ability to self-manage
