Health is biopsychosocial

My attempt at summarizing Family Medicine for my Registrars in one simple diagram.

Trying to fix health at the “bio” level is often not enough was the main point.

The “bio” is easier to see and measure. It’s more objective and apparent but digging deeper into the psychosocial is often required if one wants to solve health more effectively in the long term. 

It’s messy isn’t it?
Social can be very messy.

But we can always equip our patients with the tools to clean it up over time.
