Family practice prides itself on its clinical orientation, its concern with the health delivery system, its emphasis on intrapersonal and social influences on illness and vice versa, the role of the family in illness and of the illness in the family, and the relevance of its educational system to needs in the ambulatory care setting. Yet it is exactly those elements that make up so much of the nature of family practice that remain relatively uninvestigated.
