Abstract

One of the most characteristic aspects of family medicine/general practice is continuing comprehensive health care for individuals, provided over a longer period of time. As a consequence a scientific basis for family practice is to be found in the insight into the “natural” history of common symptoms and diseases; and in long term illness patterns in groups of patients.
