Professor Tanya McCance has an international reputation in the development of person-centred practice through the use of participatory research approaches, such as practice development and action research. She has been a registered nurse since 1990 and throughout her career has held several joint posts between higher education institutions and health and social care providers demonstrating her commitment to the integration of practice, education, and research. She has developed a programme of work through engaged scholarship and research that is underpinned by the Person-centred Practice Framework, which is central to the impact of her research. Her most recent contribution focuses on the identification of a relevant and appropriate set of key performance indicators for nursing and midwifery that are indicative of person-centred care and the development of methods that will demonstration the unique contribution of nursing to the patient experience. Tanya’s work reflects her passion for nursing and her commitment to the development of person-centred practice that will enhance the care experience for patients and their families.
