Description:
The overall aim of structured Vocational Training is to prepare medical graduates to become competent, caring and progressive General or Family Practitioners in the Irish Health Care System. In pursuit of this goal the Organisers and Tutors involved in such a task fully subscribe to the revised definition of a General Practitioner as agreed by the Working Party of the Second European Conference on the Teaching of General Practice, Leeuwenhorst, Netherlands. 1974. Their statement, which has gained wide acceptance by a large number of European countries is reproduced below. "THE ROLE OF THE GENERAL PRACTITIONER" The general practitioner is a licensed medical graduate who gives personal, primary and continuing care to individuals. families and a practice population. irrespective of age. sex and illness: it is the synthesis of these functions which is unique. He will attend his patients in his consulting room and in their homes and sometimes in a clinic or a hospital. His aim is to make early diagnoses. He will include and integrate physical. psychological and social factors in his considerations about health and illness. This will be expressed in Ihe care of his patients. He will make an initial decision about every problem which is presented to him as a doctor. He willundertnke the continuing management of his patients with chronic. recurrent or termillal illnesses. Prolonged contact means that he can use repeated opportunilies to gather information al a pace appropriate to each palient. and build up a relationship of Irust which he can usc professionally.
