Bolton Clarke Principal Advisor Wellness and Reablement Kath Paine said understanding the intersection of diversity characteristics helps professionals better support people’s individual needs.



“We know person-centred care considers an individual’s needs, preferences and values, drawing on their strengths to enhance participation in their healthcare,” she said.


“The Inclusive Health and Ageing website helps professionals deliver person-centred care by bringing together a variety of information, resources and research from within the industry to help continue to drive best practice.”

from diverse backgrounds
