Integrating cures, prevention and wellbeing in healthcare


Print Friendly

Medical practice naturally includes a curing activity, which includes both curative and palliative aspects and a preventive action in order to provide wellbeing.

The most difficult aspect in healthcare practice is to be able to integrate these three aspects in a realistic way and not considering only what should be done.

The signs and symptoms of a patient are observable. Dealing with them only requires having the knowledge of their meaning.

The aspects that deal with prevention are less observable because they vary from culture to culture and from patient to patient.

But the most difficult aspect to deal with is the understanding of the wellbeing of a patient which can only be intuited.

The preceding facts explain why healthcare is strongly focused on curing.

Medical Practice Viruses

When physicians do not assume the responsibility for wellbeing they install a business virus type “A” into their practice. The consequence is that they will be focused on diseases.

When physicians do not consider prevention they install a business virus type “B” into their practice. The consequence is that they will be focused on an “invasive” approach to patients.
