Family Medicine is a division of primary care that provides continuing and comprehensive health care for the individual and family across all ages, genders, diseases, and parts of the body. This name emphasises the holistic nature of this speciality, as well as its roots in the family. It is based on knowledge of the patient in the context of the family and the community, emphasising disease prevention and health promotion.
