The 13-item P-CAT was constructed to evaluate to what extent staff in residential aged care perceive the care provided as being person-centred (Edvardsson et al., 2010b). The P-CAT consists of three subscales covering the following dimensions of person-centredness: extent of personalizing care; amount of organizational support; and degree of environmental accessibility. Completion of the P-CAT involves asking members of staff to provide self-report ratings on items regarding aspects of person-centredness on a five-point Likert-scale ranging between ‘1=disagree completely’ and ‘5=agree completely’. Those variables that were negatively worded were reverse coded to match other variables for the purpose of data analysis.
