Abstract

The authors define primary care (otherwise known as medical home) and the reasons that make its implementation necessary and then describe a possible organizational model. In particular, they highlight the significant role of professional nurses and discuss the current lack of nursing personnel. The latter represents an obstacle in the implementation of an efficient primary care program and the authors discuss a possible solution. Finally, the implementation of primary care will require changes to be made in the organizational structure of hospitals; these are also discussed.
