RESEARCH

Resilience and Primary Care Practitioners
 

In this paper, it is argued that an understanding of the factors that make up resilience can enhance communication and concordance between practitioner and patient. A model is presented demonstrating that resilience is an interaction between factors in the internal domain, comprising psychological characteristics and resources, and the external domain, comprising the social environment surrounding the individual.
