The above semantic links are proposed because the Family Doctor is at the interface between health system and patients, thus at the interface between lay terms and health terminologies


Some rubrics have a bibliographic links

About bibliographic links:

The main idea is to propose descriptor definition or examples which fit with Family medicine. If you find a family medicine source (book, paper) which proposes another or better definition or a review of the concept in the realm of GP/FM, please feel free to send me the reference and preferably full text. .
