The Authors describe the process of widening the paradigm within EPMA incorporating into its actions the Person-Centred Medicine Paradigm. It is a humanistic and at the same time evidence-based approach. It allows for that individual psycho-physical equilibrium which is the basis for any sustainable equilibrium in society at present or in the future (responsibility). Person-Centred Medicine calls for wider medical knowledge and practice, not only of how to treat pathology but how to generate health (salutogenesis). It is a systemic approach and adopts a unitary view of sentient being and the world. The Person Centred Medicine Paradigm aims to incorporate the holistic approach, the relationship-based care and the treatment systems of biomedicine into the technological advances of mainstream medicine in order to provide more personalised and sustainable healthcare.
