Medicine is the science and practice of the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disease. Prescientific forms of medicine are now known as traditional medicine and folk medicine.
They remain commonly used with or instead of scientific medicine and are thus called alternative medicine. Medical availability and clinical practice varies across the world due to regional differences in culture and technology. In modern clinical practice, physicians personally assess patients in order to diagnose, treat, and prevent disease using clinical judgment. They are in the patient’s own words and are recorded along with the duration of each one.
Also called ‘chief concern’ or ‘presenting complaint’. Medical history comprises HPI and PMH. Current activity: occupation, hobbies, what the patient actually does. A family tree is sometimes used. The physical examination is the examination of the patient for medical signs of disease, which are objective and observable, in contrast to symptoms which are volunteered by the patient and not necessarily objectively observable.
