Patients, when ill, present not only a collection of organ systems, one or more of which require the intervention of scientific medicine, but rather as integral humans beings with narratives, preferences, values, psychology and many social necessities. Scientific medicine can only address a fraction of such concerns, so we need to improve and implement health systems science as an emerging component of professional education. Person centered healthcare is a new way of “thinking and doing” in clinical practice which understands patients as persons. This is a philosophy and method which enables affordable biomedical and technological advance to be delivered to patients within a humanistic framework of care that recognizes the importance of treating the patient as a whole person and responding to “her emotional, social and spiritual necessities in addition to her physical needs”.
