The person-centred care model seeks to improve the quality of life of persons needing social and health care by fostering personal autonomy, respecting the life project and humanising relations between professionals and care recipients and their families, taking account of their autonomy and decision-taking ability. 

Person-centred care requires a change in culture and management practices on the part of professionals and institutions, with care centres having to adapt their procedures, systems and rules. This graduate diploma gives professionals a solid grounding in the elements that are key to carrying out this transformation of the management model.


  • Develop a professional activity in keeping with the person-centred care model in care homes for the elderly and/or dependent persons.
  • Train professionals to offer clearly-explained, personalised care that guarantees respect for dignity, autonomy and privacy.
  • Tailor the fundamental principles of the person-centred care model to the context of care homes and centres in Catalonia.

UAB masters and graduate diplomas may include or facilitate external academic internships in companies or institutions in order to help the student to achieve a level of expertise that facilitates the insertion or promotion in the workplace...

These internships may be curricular (compulsory) or non-curricular (optional).

  • Curricular
    Curricular practices are those which are included in the curriculum of the studies and, therefore, must be overcome to obtain the degree. The programme manager will explain you the details of how, where and under what conditions you should do the internship.
  • Non-curricular
    Extracurricular practices are those that are not included in the curriculum of the studies. You can choose to do them in addition. The coordination of your program will explain the details of how, where and under what conditions can they be carried out.
