Continuing Development of Person-centered Medicine and Addressing Chronic Disease
Keywords:Person-centered medicine, chronic disease
AbstractThe ongoing development of person centered medicine to which our International College is committed proceeds through several key activities. These include our Geneva Conferences and its Geneva Declarations, upcoming International Congresses, research projects on conceptualization and measurement, integrative diagnosis, and clinical care guidelines, and this International Journal of Person Centered Medicine. The Board of the International College, the University of Buckingham Press as publisher, and the renewed editorial team of the Journal are fully dedicated to the continuing development and flourishing of this fundamental institutional and academic enterprise.
