Allied Academies Group proudly invites all the participants and contributors across the globe to attend International Conference on Family Medicine and Family Physicians during Oct 16-18, 2017 at Toronto, Canada. Family medicine Conference strives to bring renowned scientists, Physicians, Surgeons, Professors, Instrumentalists, Medical and Industrial professions, young researchers, students and Business delegates under a single roof providing an opportunity to share the knowledge and scientific progress in the field Family medicine shaping the future research. Family medicine and its specialty are focused on loving, caring and never ending relationships between the patients and their families. Family physicians combine the clinical, behavioral, and biological sciences to provide comprehensive and continuous health care. The field and scope of family medicine encircles each organ system, all ages, sexes and every disease entity. Research studies shows that countries that highlight primary care have better outcomes of health at a lower cost. Where U.S. tries to increase and improve delivery of health care, it is clear that family physicians i.e. the primary health care providers are success of a more effective process. Family physicians provide the most care - managing Primary care specialties such as family medicine, general and internal medicine and pediatrics.

Family medicine is a tri-dimensional specialty, including (1) skill, (2) knowledge and (3) system. Patient-physician relationship is at the center of system element with the patient viewed in the circumstances of their family. It is the level of extent to which this relationship is maintained, developed, valued, and nurtured that differentiates family medicine from all other sub specialties. The main aim of this meeting is to exchange new scientific and clinical data in the field of Family medicine uniting among the specialists, doctors, researchers, and other partnered wellbeing experts under one rooftop.

Why to attend???

Medical doctors, patients and health care providers consider the prevention from orthopedic disorders as an essential tool to improve the general health status of the population.

ATC Classification System:

The Anatomical Therapeutic Chemical Classification System is a tool for pharmaceutical industries to classify pharmaceutical products. It was initiated in the year 1971 by European Pharmaceutical Market Research Association (EphMRA) and is being maintained by the EphMRA and the Pharmaceutical Business Intelligence and Research Group (PBIRG). The A T Chemical classification system is used for the classification of active ingredients of drugs which are manufactured according to the organ or system on which they act. In this system drugs are classified into groups at different levels, some codes in the first level are blood and blood forming organs indicated by B, dermatologicals are indicated by D, nervous system is indicated by N, respiratory system is indicated by R and sensory organs are indicated by S


Family nurse practitioner:

A family nurse practitioner is a person who provides comprehensive and continuing healthcare for a particular family or for a particular individual. These services are provided all the age groups in a family. The FNP must be board certified by an approved certification body. The board certification in US is provided by two board’s one is the American Nurses Credentialing Center and the other one is American Academy of Nurse Practitioners certification program. Family Nurse Practitioner also provides services like preventive care, including routine check-up, health-risk assessments, immunization and screening tests, and personalized counselling. There is huge rise in demand for family physician in United States. A nurse with post-graduation education in nursing is called an Advanced practice registered nurse (APRN). These nurses are prepared with didactic and clinical education, knowledge, skills required for practicing nursing.


Emergency Health Care:

The emergency health care services are provided to the patients who are in an emergency situation outside the hospital. These services are known as paramedic services or the ambulance services. These individuals who respond first to the emergency situation are a called First responder and they are certified. The certified first responders always have the basic equipment required for an emergency situation. The main purpose of Emergency Health care is to save life, prevent any further injuries and provide basic first aid to the victim. The air ambulances (helicopters) services are operated and maintained by different sources like hospital-operated and others like Federal State or local government; or through a variety of departments, including local or State Police, the United States Park Service or Fire Departments. Emergency medical technician or ambulance technician are the terms used in some countries to denote a health care provider.Pediatric emergency medicine: this is a subspecialty in medicine which deals with both pediatrics and emergency medicine. It deals with acute illnesses or injuries in children who are undifferentiated and unscheduled; these acute illnesses require immediate medical attention. Intensive medicine or critical care medicine is a stream of medicine that deals with diagnosis and management of life in life threatening situations requiring sophisticated organ support and invasive monitoring



The treatment or therapy using the drugs that are manufactured in a pharmaceutical industry is called pharmacotherapy. These drugs are administered by experts to ensure that they are used safely, appropriately and economically. This is a branch of science that is involved only in the development of pharmacotherapy. The pharmacotherapy specialist is responsible directly for patient care and they also provide all the valuable information that is required for the patients and professionals in healthcare. New pharmaceutical drugs are created by the pharmaceutical industries and academia use basic science, applied science, and translational science. The required knowledge, training and experience in biomedical, pharmaceutical and clinical sciences are required to function as a pharmacist. Physical therapy is also called movement therapy or physiotherapy which involves treatment by movement and mechanical force.Pharmacology is the stream of biology that deals with the study of drug action and this drug can be defined broadly as endogenous (from within body) or natural, manmade. Clinical pharmacology is the branch of science that deal with drugs and their clinical use

Primary Health Care:

The ultimate goal of primary healthcare is to attain better health services to all the people. The Primary Health care ensures universal health care access to all individuals, which is scientifically sound and the methods used in PHC is accepted socially. The PHC services are provided under the goals and principles which are identified by the World Health Organization. The outcomes of primary healthcare results in better health outcomes, reduced health disparities and lower spending, including on avoidable emergency room visits and hospital care. In Canada the access to primary and other healthcare services are provided for all citizens through the Canada Health Act. According to the Association of American Medical Colleges report in November 2009 physician work force report, nationally, the rate of physicians providing primary care is 79.4 physicians per 100,000 residents. The debate related to health care reform in United States includes right to health care, access, fairness, sustainability, quality and amounts spent by the government in welfare of the public equally.  Health crisis is a complex health system or a difficult situation that occurs in one or more geographical locations mainly due to natural hazards. Health economics is a branch of economics that deals with issues related to effectiveness, efficiency, behaviour in the consumption and production of healthcare and health.  Evidence based policy is a process to understand approaches to enhance the likelihood of policy adoption and content to identify specific policy elements that are likely to be effective and outcomes to document the potential impact of policy.Preventivemedicine/ Preventive Healthcare: Measures taken to prevent diseases, which opposed to disease treatment is called preventive medicine. Every year millions of people die due to preventable deaths. Epidemiology: analysing of patterns , effects and causes of health and disease conditions in defined populations is called epidemiology.



Global Health:

The global health plays an important role in the research and practice’s that are important on improving health for all the people worldwide equally. Global health is about reducing disparities and protection form global threats. Wold Health Organization is a predominant agency that is associated with global health. Disregarding the national borders the Global Health is about the improvement of world health, other agencies that impact global health include UNICEF, World food programme, and the World Bank. The interventions in global health to develop child health and survival include the promotion of breastfeeding, zinc supplement, vitamin A fortification and salt iodization, hygiene interventions such as hand-washing, vaccinations, and treatments of severe acute malnutrition. Total of 32 treatments and health interventions are suggested by the Global health Council that could potentially save several million lives each year. The conditions in which people are grown, work, born, live and age is called Social Determinants of Health (SDH). The forces and systems in SDH include economic policies and systems, development agendas, social norms, social policies and political systems. Migrant Health is the field of study that deal with the health effects experienced by people who have moved to different part of the world either by choice or as a result of unsafe situations such as war


Public health:

The public health refers to disease prevention, promoting and prolonging life through organized efforts and choices that are informed by the society, organizations, public and private, communities and individuals. The main aim of public health intervention is to improve the quality of life through disease prevention and disease treatments. In United States the public health activities are held at the municipal level before the mid-20th century. Under the administration of the second president of United States, hospitals were organized by the congress for mariners. All the vaccination programs and control of many infectious diseases by the public health resulted in dramatic rise in average life span in 19th and 20th century. Major infectious diseases like polio, yellow fever, and smallpox were controlled by the public health programmes.  Other major public health improvement was the decline of urban penalty brought about by the improvement in sanitation. Public health improvements include chlorination of drinking water, filtration and sewage treatment, which led to the decline of deaths caused by the infectious diseases. The United States Department of Health and Human services (HHS) populates a publicly available called the Health System Measurement Project to ensure a robust monitoring system. The US health care delivery system provides equal and uneven medical care of varying quality to its population.


Family Planning:

The process of controlling the population or number of children in a family is called family planning. This process is done especially by the artificial contraception or voluntary sterilization. Birth control assisted reproductive technology and family planning programs are the modern methods of family planning. These modern methods of contraception are important in improving the long-term health of adolescent girls. In United States the use of contraceptives saves about $19 million in direct medical costs each year. Title X of the PHS ACT in U.S. government program is dedicated in providing family planning services to ones who are in need but the percentage of public funding to this Title X is declined form 44% in 1980 to 12% in 2006, of the total expenditures. Natalism is also called pro-natalism or the pro-birth position, this is a belief that promotes human reproduction. This term is derived from the Latin adjective form for “birth”. Anti-Natalism is the policies that are against human reproduction. Parental leave is an employee benefit leave given in almost all the countries. Parental leave general refers to maternity, paternity and adoption leave. In some countries family leave is given to take care of the ill family members or sick ones in a family



The feeding of babies and small children with milk from a woman’s breast is called Breastfeeding. Breastfeeding begins from the very first hour of the baby’s life and continues as long as the baby wants. Breastfeeding is also called as Nursing. Child deaths under the age of five can be controlled globally every year with increased breastfeeding. Many diseases can be prevented by breastfeeding in the child health like low risks of asthma, food allergies, diabetes type 2 and leukemia. Breastfeeding plays a vital role in child development. Till today there are no known disadvantages in breastfeeding but extra precautions should be taken to avoid breastfeeding in certain circumstances such as infectious diseases or use of medications. Breastfeeding also benefits the mother’s health in reducing risk of breast cancer, ovarian cancer and endometrial cancer. WABA (World Alliance for Breastfeeding Action) is a global network formed in 1991 to protect, promote and to support the right of all mothers and children’s to breastfeeding


Walk-in clinic:

Patients who are accepted for treatment by direct walk-in without an appointment to a clinic is called walk- in clinic. Many healthcare providers like urgent care center’s, retail clinics, community health clinics and many free clinics comes under this category. The walk-in clinic is a very broad category of medical facilities. Recent studies estimate that there are nearly 11,000 walk-in clinics in America.  Walk-in clinics are considered to be urgent care center by consumers. All types of Walk-in clinics provide all the basic and standard services such as routine vaccinations, evaluation of cold and flu symptoms and severe physical injuries but the urgent care center’s provide more services such as X-ray testing for suspected pneumonia or broken bones. Regular follow up and care is given to the patients at the walk-in clinics
