    Health practice might be informed by scientific knowledge but it is carried out with people and within social contexts. To this end, much has been written about patient-centred care. The virtues of listening to patients, respecting their health beliefs and behaviours and working with them as partners have been well documented. From the World Health Organization to government agencies to local community health centres, all subscribe and explicitly endorse patient-centred approaches through policies, missions and practice models (WHO, 2000; Kitson, Marshall, Bassett, & Zeitz, 2012).
