Person Centered Medicine: Core and Diversity

Juan E Mezzich, Ihsan M. Salloum

Abstract


 

In the conceptualization of Person Centered Medicine (PCM) one can recognize core concepts as well as diversity at multiple levels. The core concepts convey vision and depth. Diversity displays plurality, richness and scope. And both are intertwined and articulated through the unfolding process and journey that the construction of PCM represents.

 

This paper briefly elaborates on these complementary perspectives of PCM. And ends introducing a set of papers that illustrate its core and diversity.
