23 June, 2021

It is possible to separate health care provision into four areas

1. Acute illnesses and their management

2. Continuing and multimorbidities management

3. Health promotion

4. Preventative health care

1. and 4, are by necessity mainly executed by service providers and health professionals.

2. is executed jointly by service provider and patient

3. is mainly executed by individuals, families, patients and communities through their culture, diet, exercise, relationships etc

Patient orientated/partnered/centred care is essential for 2. and 3.
