Abstract

The FIS is a highly efficient way of educating and counseling all interested family members from a geographic catchment area during a single session at one location. It enables the physician to educate intensively a large number of family members during a single session, to establish rapport, and, in many cases, to interact with local family physicians who are caring for the family and who may elect to attend the FIS with the family's permission. In short, we strongly advocate the FIS, given its simplicity and its effectiveness.
