Abstract

Describes an intensive, multifactorial health promotion and disease prevention curriculum that was introduced into a community hospital family medicine residency program. The program is documented to have increased the 25 resident physicians' use of preventive strategies with their patients, and facilitated their use of specific protocols for the management of common problems amenable to health promotion and disease prevention.
