The interpretation of quality healthcare varies with each person. Some place emphasis on the ability to access various treatments without interference. Others value the feature of being able to simply select one’s provider. Quality healthcare, according to the Institute of Medicine (2001), can be defined as care that is “safe, effective, patient-centered, timely, efficient and equitable” (p. 3). Furthermore, it should account for, in detail, a patient’s medical history, and improve overall patient well-being.

One of the five key principles of care practice is to ‘Support people in having a voice and being heard,’ (K101, Unit 4, p.183). The key principles are linked to the National Occupational Standards for ‘Healthand Social Care’. They are a means of establishing and maintaining good care practice. Relationships based on trust and respect should be developed between care receivers andcare givers, thus promoting confidence whilst discussing personal matters without fear of reprisal and discrimination.
