Resumo: In primary care, physicians have the opportunity to address preventative causes of morbidity and mortality. Primary care physicians have a distinct opportunity to provide counseling regarding lifestyle changes and disease prevention in a variety of settings, both during the treatment of acute illnesses and with wellness examinations. Questions from patients regarding specific recommendations and interventions are common. In this article, we address barriers to and tools to encourage lifestyle changes in the areas of smoking cessation, weight loss, physical activity, mental health, and substance abuse/misuse.
