“Public health is working on a population level, and upstream in terms of looking for problems and trying to identify them before they get bigger. Family doctors are looking at it one patient at a time, identifying or working with the problems that exist. It is a different world. Public health has a population view and we have an individual or family view. They have more a proactive screening, early identification, prevention view. We have a bit more of a reactive view. However, some primary care practices are starting to take on a broader and proactive perspective. ”
