Quick Reference

An alternative term proposed as a replacement for public health that, like several others, including “community medicine,” “social medicine,” and “public health medicine,” may be as much an indication of insecurity of medically qualified public health professionals about their roles and responsibilities as an attempt to find a phrase that describes the nature of the work of public health specialists. It is sometimes linked to the concept of “population as patient” or to the practice of clinical preventive medicine with a combination of formal screening programs and ad hoc or opportunistic screening tests to detect early evidence of treatable conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, and cancer of the breast.
