Whole-person care in general practice: The nature of whole-person care.

Whole-person care (WPC) is a core value of general practice and is particularly relevant with increasing population multimorbidity. However, WPC has lacked consensus definition, and some argue that it is not consistently practised. The aim of this study was to determine Australian general practitioners' (GPs') understanding of WPC and factors affecting its provision. This article (the first in a three-part series) describes GPs' understanding of WPC.
