Finding the right professional competencies to provide care for all individuals requires a devotion to interprofessional work, deliberative learning, and shared responsibility. Preventing disease and illness at the earliest possible opportunity is a responsibility of all health care providers and professionals. Accomplishing that necessitates research, teaching, implementation and evaluation within a quality-devoted framework.
