Mental Health in Person Centered Medicine

Juan E Mezzich, Michel Botbol, Ihsan M Salloum

Abstract


Person Centered Medicine is fundamentally aimed at promoting the health and well-being of the totality of the person. Here the person is the key concept as the center and goal of health care. An important implication is that the focus of contemporary medicine should be shifted from disease to patient to person. In the clinical arena, Iona Heath has spoken critically of “promotion of disease and distortion of medicine” and concerning public health, WHO’s definition of health as “a state of complete physical, emotional and social wellbeing and not merely the absence of disease” is compelling

Keywords
