Definition of General Practice

WONCA Europe [World Organization of Family Doctors] published in 2002 the European Definition of General Practice/ Family Medicine, which presented the different characteristics of the discipline. After little changes in 2005, an updated version has been proposed to the medical community, focusing on the place of the patient in the process of care. A new feature was added highlighting the patient empowerment. These fundamental elements structuring General Practice/Family Medicine [GP/FM], jointly developed by the European countries in a consensual approach, are useful for all countries in the world.
