More effective prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation will be the outcome of including the family unit in the delivery of primary care, as opposed to primary care aimed solely at individuals. This is the proposal explored by this volume's interdisciplinary contributors, who discuss theory, practice, education and research methodology related to primary care.
