Internal Medicine and Primary Care

Primary care is a healthcare given by the healthcare provider. This provider acts as first contact, principal point of continuing care for the patient within a health care system, and coordinates with other specialist care that the patient may need. Patients commonly get primary care from the primary care physician. Physicians specializing in internal medicine are called internist.

The World Health Organization attributes that, provision of essential primary care as an integral component of an inclusive primary health care strategy. Primary care involves widest scope of healthcare, including patients of all the ages, patients of all socioeconomic and geographic origins and the patients seeking to maintain optimal health, patients with all manner of acute and chronic physical, mental and social health issues, including multiple chronic diseases. Consequently, Primary care doctor must possess a wide breadth of knowledge in many areas. Continuity is a key characteristic of the primary care, as patients usually prefer to consult same practitioner for routine check-ups and preventive care, health education, and every time the patient requires an initial consultation about a new health problem.

Common chronic illnesses usually treated in primary care may include, hypertensionanginadiabetesasthmaCOPDorthopaedicdepression and anxietyback pain, arthritis or thyroid dysfunction. Primary care also includes many basic maternal and child health care services, such as family planning services and vaccinations.

In context of the global population ageing, with the increasing number of older adults at greater risk of chronic non-communicable diseases, demand for primary care services is expected to grow around the world, in both developed and developing countries. Different types of common diseases treated in primary care will be discussed in our scientific session.
