The exceptional potential in each primary care consultation

J R Coll Gen Pract. 1979 Apr;29(201):201-5.


A four-point framework is described which has been found to be helpful for general practitioners who try to achieve greater breadth in each consultation. The framework has also provided a useful stimulus in undergraduate and postgraduate teaching, because it provides a nomenclature to identify four major components of clinical practice which are particularly relevant to primary care.
