discuss the following:

points made by the author about patient-centered care. Why is this form of care
important? How does it affect outcomes? How can we overcome obstacles to the
adoption of these culture-change practices?

2. Discuss a minimum of three barriers/challenges to implementing
person-centered care in nursing homes.

3. In addition to person-centered care practices mentioned in the article,

preference. Include at least two additional scholarly resources (in addition to
the Koren article) cited according to APA guidelines as outlined in the Ashford
Writing Center, to support your discussion.
