Don Berwick has raised recently the idea that medicine is moving into its third era. This session will take the concept of the emergence of a third era of medicine and frame it for primary care, using medication use and polypharmacy to provide a lens to examine implications and opportunities. From a system perspective, and from a patient perspective there are key underlying questions that offer great opportunity: how will primary care provide the innovative systems of care needed for individuals to support a life worth living, on their terms?
