What is integrated care in nursing?

Integrated care in nursing brings together all of the services that support an individual, enabling them to work collaboratively to provide the best possible care. This could include the nursing home at which the individual is a resident, their GP or hospital consultant, family members and all those involved in their care.

Crucially, integrated care also puts the individual (along with their carers and loved ones, as appropriate) in control of the nursing care they receive.

Integrated nursing care is person-centred, considering the needs of the whole person, and supporting their wellbeing alongside their physical health. Central to this is understanding what is important to the individual, and how to support them to continue doing the things that they love.

By bringing together all of the services which support an individual, integrated nursing care is designed to ensure that all of the services involved in an individual’s care can support them to live the life they choose.
