  Scope of the journal

JPSC is a multidisciplinary journal covering primary care specialties. It has been established to facilitate research, education, training, and practice of primary care specialties. Primary care is a melting point of several specialties and subspecialties within the community setting. Primary care specialties include family medicine, general pediatrics, general internal medicine, general obstetrics, gynecology, public health, etc. fulfilling the specific patient population’s general medical needs. Primary care providers also include nurse practitioners. Several subspecialties, such as preventive cardiology, also intersect the disciplinary boundaries of primary care. Family medicine is a major primary care discipline. Family medicine (FM) is a clinical medical specialty devoted to comprehensive health care for people of all ages. It provides continuing and comprehensive health care for the individual and family across all ages, genders, disease, and parts of the body.

Primary Care is patient-focused general care for adults, children, and families. A person’s primary care provider is typically the first one a patient turns to for diagnosis and treating common illnesses. In contrast to Primary Care (PC); Primary Health Care (PHC) is a whole-of-society approach to health that aims equitably to maximize the level and distribution of health and well-being by focusing on people’s needs and preferences; both as individuals and communities. Primary care teams provide comprehensive care across the lifespan and take a “whole-person” approach to health and wellness.
