About Me information is the most important details that a person wants to share with professionals in health and social care.
This information might include how best to communicate with the person, how to help them feel at ease or details about how they like to take their medication.
The PRSB has published a standard outlining how About Me information should be documented and shared in health and care records.
The #CareAboutMe campaign aims to raise widespread awareness of the About Me standard and the improvements it can make to the quality of care administered in health and care, as well as the positive impact it can have on people’s quality of life and health.
