Overview

Now more than ever, as health care becomes more technically and scientifically focused, it is critically important that the patient does not become de-humanized in the process. Nurses are the key to ensuring medicine remains human centered.

Human centered care, a basic tenet of the philosophical basis of nursing practice, is the foundation of quality nursing care. In today's high-tech world of medicine, the human connection between nurse and patient must be integrated with technological and scientific advances, placing equal importance on the awareness of patient as person and the application of technical skills.
