An epidemiological approach of common conditions in primary care

Defense date2019

In primary care, guidelines often conflict with a holistic approach to the patient's problems. This highlights both the unmet needs for evidence necessary to primary care daily decisions and the need to develop primary care research. One of the first steps to improve primary care research is to ground research initiatives into primary care practice. We propose to shape general research procedures using a framework exploring the convergent dynamics leading to shared clinical decision. In this dynamic representation, primary care research gathers new evidence from clinical states and circumstances, patients' preferences and actions, and clinical expertise. These data can feed a loop leading to enhanced clinical expertise through the uptake of research findings into routine healthcare in clinical contexts.
