The lecture, “Patient Centered Medical Home,” was presented by Steven A. Crawford, MD during the GAFP’s 59th Annual Scientific Assembly in November 2007. The presentation was designed for family physicians as an approach to providing comprehensive primary care for children, youth and adults. The goal of the patient centered medical home is to provide accessible, comprehensive, culturally-sensitive, and compassionate care to the patients in our community.At the completion of this session, participants will be able to:
- Discuss the concept of the patient-centered medical home as a partnership between a patient and a personal physician build around preventive and primary care.
- Describe how the medical home is organized around the needs and wishes of the patient rather than the doctors or the insurance companies.
- Implement the team approach, in the physicians' office, for providing and coordinating health care while offering support from a personal physician who helps the patient navigate the health care system.
