From the Paper:

"This report of the Public Health Agency of Canada (2006) offers an explanation of the Canadian Best Practices Portal for Health Promotion and Chronic Disease Prevention, an impressive phenomenon when one remembers a vast Canadian area of health providers contending with diverse population groups in several provincial systems. The reader sees the achievement to which the authors refer but will have many questions about what is being undertaken and especially in the Portal's orientation of population medicine. The tone of the study is rather self-congratulating in terms of what contributors to the Portal for Health Promotion and Chronic Disease Prevention have created. The early sections are a rationale of the Best Practices approach, why Canadian physicians and others who work in community health need the Portal, and with population medicine defined as medicine referring to the population, i.e. the society, as opposed to the individual. (Portal:2006:5) The early development of the Portal project to standardize some general medical practice is noted, the emphasis on preventative medicine cum health promotion described as thought it will always offset future disease, again, across a population. Population medicine is less geared to the individual, the Portal project study says, as though this is a breakthrough of some kind."
