“Seeing the patient as a whole is the center of our family medicine society”, says Alfredo Cuffari, president of Snamid, National Interdisciplinary Medical Society for primary care. “We have always sought to share training courses and projects with specialist medical companies – he continues -. We see many things, patients with multiple clinical problems: we solve what is within our reach but we must deepen the “specialist” knowledge to give a better response to patients “. The family doctor, “is the doctor of the person who has entered his family, professional and working reality – adds Cuffari -. Many disorders do not have a strictly organic origin, but arise from work dynamics or family problems that can be perceived by the family doctor, but not by Dr. Google “who, given the symptoms,” provides dozens of articles that, without medical knowledge basically they just create confusion ”. In terms of technology, Telemedicine and teleconsultation are, for the Snamid president, “an opportunity, but it is important to define the space to give” to these realities.
