Abstract

The author describes a system of health hazard recognition and risk reduction leading to disease prevention. By recognizing certain risk factors in a patient's data base, the physician is able to identify specific hazards and to develop and implement a program aimed at reducing these risks. The efficacy of this system is discussed and the necessity of patient motivation in evolving a successful preventive program is emphasized.
