CUBA FUENTES, María Sofía  and  ROMERO ALBINO, Zoila Olga de los Milagros. The clinical person-centered method and its application in primary healthcare. Rev. perú. med. exp. salud publica [online]. 2016, vol.33, n.4, pp.780-784. ISSN 1726-4634.

The person-centered clinical method (PCCM) used in primary healthcare (PHC) is a useful tool to improve a person’s approach to a health system that adequately responds to the needs of the population. PHC is built on the basis of a good health system, through compliance with its four attributes-first contact access, person focused care over time, comprehensiveness, and coordination of care-and it becomes an essential part of the growth of any nation that wants to provide quality healthcare. In conclusion, the PCCM is related to a strong PHC, as it is based on an approach focused on meeting people’s needs.
