The Role of Prevention in Health Care

Introduction
Many of the leading causes of death and disability in the United States can be prevented. Primary prevention can prevent or arrest the disease process in its earliest stages by promoting healthier lifestyles or immunizing against infectious disease. Secondary prevention, by detecting and treating asymptomatic risk factors or early asymptomatic disease, can substantially reduce subsequent morbidity or mortality. The clinician plays a pivotal role in both primary and secondary prevention.

The Changing Climate of Prevention
Public education campaigns and commercial advertising had spurred interest in low-fat diets, exercise, and weight management. The emergence of new screening technologies and the promotion of specific tests by celebrities and national organizations made patient requests for screening a common occurrence in clinicians’ offices. With the advent of the Internet and other information technologies, many patients grew more knowledgeable about options for preventive care and newly released guidelines. Access to information was accompanied by a greater sense of empowerment among patients, including a desire to be more informed consumers and to take a more active role in making health care choices.

The Final Frontier of Preventive Medicine
Practice guidelines are relatively weak tools for changing clinical practice when used in isolation. To effect change, guidelines must be coupled with strategies to improve their acceptance and feasibility.

In the case of preventive services guidelines, implementation needs to go beyond traditional strategies. An approach aimed to utilizing advanced imaging and screening tools available in this modern age to focus on preventive medicine instead of waiting for disease process to show when it is already too late for any chance of reversal.
