A Paradigm for Patient Centered Care
➤ First, do no harm; provide the most effective health care available with the least risk at all times.
➤ Recognize, respect, and promote the self-healing power of nature inherent in each individual human being.
➤ Identify and remove the causes of illness, rather than eliminate or suppress symptoms.
➤ Educate, inspire rational hope, and encourage self-responsibility for health.
➤ Treat each person by considering all individual health factors and influences.
➤ Emphasize the condition of health to promote well-being and to prevent diseases for the individual, each community, and our world.
