The emphasis of family practice was on the broadbased care of the person and family, rather than a narrow focus on the disease problem. Finally, family physicians advocated improving the quality of life, particularly important when patients suffer chronic or terminal illness, and victory over disease is not really possible. These principles, more often intuitively shared than explicitly articulated during the early years, guided subsequent historical events. The Early Years Family practice arose as a specialty during the 1960s – the time of the Vietnam War, the civil rights movement, and widespread social unrest – a time when the wisdom of experts was challenged.
In the beginning, family practice entered the academic setting as both a new specialty and a social movement, aiming to refocus health care on the patient and family; this perceived intrusion was not always welcomed. A patient seen by a family physician was sometimes perceived as a loss to some other specialist. Today, medical education and health-care delivery are profoundly inﬂuenced by family medicine values, both through the impact of our presence throughout the health-care system and through the power of our core mission of caring for the patient.
In countries outside North America, family and general practice has evolved in various ways. In Spain, for example, the Royal Decree of 1978 ofﬁcially endorsed the specialty of family practice: “The family physician shall constitute the fundamental ﬁgure of the health system” . In England, the general practitioner (GP) is the key provider in the National Health Service, and the countries of the European Economic Community (EEC) have agreed that postgraduate training in general practice should be a minimum of two full years, of which 6 months should be in an approved practice.
