Person Centred Health Action Plans: what are we learning?

This paper will introduce one page Health Action Plans, a way of supporting people to achieve and maintain good health that places person centred thinking at the centre of the process. It will examine what Government policy said about Health Action Planning and will look at what has been tried since 2001. The learning that has taken place will be considered and the components of a one page Health Action Plan will be discussed. The best people to do Health Action Planning with individuals will be suggested and the advantages and disadvantages of this kind of method will be examined.
