How to include a PRIMARY CARE PRACTICE in your Pathology Prevention plans.
Primary Care begins with the day-to-day healthcare performed by the Health Guardian. Typically, this health provider acts as the first contact and principal point of continuing care in a self-care and holistic care environment. The Health Guardian coordinates with other primary care providers and specialists that may be needed.
Primary care involves the widest scope of healthcare, including all ages of people, those seeking to maintain optimal health, and those with all manner of acute and chronic physical, mental and social health issues, including multiple chronic diseases. Consequently, a Health Guardian must possess a wide breadth of knowledge in many areas. Continuality is a key characteristic of the primary care of the Health Guardian. Collaboration among other providers is a desirable characteristic of primary care as well.
