WELCOME

The International College of Person-centered Medicine is a non-for-profit educational, research, and advocacy organization emerging from the Geneva Conferences on Person-centered Medicine since 2008 to date aimed at promoting the articulation of science and humanism in medicine and health care and refocusing these on the whole person.

Person-centered medicine is dedicated to the promotion of health as a state of physical, mental, socio-cultural and spiritual wellbeing as well as to the reduction of disease, and founded on mutual respect for the dignity and responsibility of each individual person.

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are 17 goals with 169 targets that all 191 UN Member States have agreed to try to achieve by the year 2030. Health has a central place in SDG 3 “Ensure healthy lives and promoting well-being for all at all ages”, underpinned by 13 targets. Almost all of the other 16 goals are directly related to health or will contribute to health indirectly.

From the International Journal of Person Centered Medicine

Vol 6, No. 2 Editorial Introduction

It is said that Person Centered Medicine (PCM) is definitionally aimed at placing the whole person at the center of health and as the goal of health care. The key importance of the person and personhood in medicine has been well articulated by Cassell. Also key in the definition of PCM are the concepts of wholeness and health. Thus, it should be helpful in order to understand better PCM to appraise wholeness and health and their inter-relations as well as their main aspects and elements. One of the interesting and not frequently addressed elements of wholeness in health is its longitudinal dimension.
