Introduction


The patient-centered care process was transforming and it was expressed through the themes of closeness, therapeutic care and team work. Being close displayed the sudden and devastating nature of injury and the need for the staff to let go of their emotions in order that they may maintain a positive momentum. Therapeutic care provided the necessary link between the staff and the patients, and it was combined with a proactive dynamic approach to care. Team work identified the importance of maintaining expertise and at the same time making the system work for patients to ensure quality care.
