Prevention

While direct care based upon episodes of illness, disease, or disability is always appropriate, concerns about preventive services as an integral part of clinical care should be of utmost concern to all practitioners.

It is the position of the National Academies of Practice that every health care enterprise should acknowledge the critical importance of the teaching and inculcation of prevention as well as the need for competently delivered patient care services.

The rationale for this position derives from the ethical principle of beneficence, which recognizes the desirability of preventing illness and disease and promoting health among all persons and communities. The principle of autonomy argues for the informed patient's right to initiate preventive and wellness measures. This right is dependent upon the patient having access to relevant health information and strategies which are essential ingredients of patient care and services.
