Abstract

One of the fundamental features of our approach to person centered medicine is its world-wide matrix. This applies to the historical roots of person centered medicine, to its contemporary antecedents, to the scope of the multiple organizations that are collaborating to develop it, to the reasons behind the selection of Geneva as the site of its foundational conferences, to the nature of the non-profit organization that has been established to formalize it, to the aims of its official journal and the geographical sources of the articles it publishes, and to the horizons informing the planning of its congresses and evolving projects. These diverse and complementary international perspectives and domains, and the papers published in this particularly international issue of the Journal, will be highlighted next.
