Abstract

Primary health care has emerged as a key element in the health care delivery system. A well-organized system of primary care is needed to reduce the fragmented, often parallel approaches currently seen in the delivery of health care. Important aspects of primary care include not only comprehensive services and continuity of care to the individual client but health assessment and intervention to meet the community needs as a whole. A nursing model is presented for comprehensive interdisciplinary primary health care practice, education, and research. A unique aspect of this model is the partnership with the community, which is an essential component for operationalization of the model. Use of this model will provide an opportunity for cost-effective, acceptable, accessible, and holistic health care that better meets the needs of the community.
