For 25 years I have been involved in exploring and developing person-centered approaches to nursing and dermatology care. I have developed: 1) more person-centered approaches to supporting self-care and psychological support amongst those living with chronic skin conditions in the UK and in resource-poor countries; and 2) tools that both promote patient self-efficacy in dermatology care, self-management and shared decision making, as a basis for improving treatment adherence and patient support; and also explored 3) what makes dermatology consultations therapeutic. My current study, with Professor Galvin (Hull), funded by the Burdett Trust, is on developing more person-centered dermatology care
