Person-centered Medicine is dedicated to the promotion of health as a state of physical, mental, social and spiritual well-being as well as to the reduction of disease. It is founded on the articulation of science and humanism to enhance personalized understanding of illness and positive health, clinical communication, and respect for the dignity and responsibility of every person, at individual and community levels.
The Journal Editorial Board is drawn from all major medical specialities and health disciplines and is constituted by the world’s most distinguished thinkers in the field. Regional Editors are being appointed for North America, Latin America, Europe, Africa, Asia, and Oceania.
Professor Andrew Miles said: ‘The Int J Pers Cent Med, creating as it does an international forum for the exchange of ideas and the promotion of scholarly debate, is an extremely important contribution to the advancement and operationalisation of humanistic medicine in our times. I am honoured to be invited to be the inaugural Editor-in-Chief at this exciting time of paradigmatic change within medicine. I recommend the journal as essential reading for all clinicians and trainees and to all those academic disciplines with an interest in or responsibility for the promotion of person and people-centered medicine’.
