This chapter illustrates how the biopsychosocial model might work within the context of medical practice. It discusses its relevance to research using a case study as an example of the role of clinical care in developing research strategies for applying psychosocial principles. It argues that individual illnesses are a legitimate area of research into the biopsychosocial model.
