19th WONCA Europe Conference 2014

  • Conference Call
  • The city of Lis­bon, Por­tu­gal is ready to host the 19th Wonca Europe Con­fer­ence in 2014 on May 5 – 7, 2014. Under the theme “New Routes for Gen­eral Prac­tice and Fam­ily Med­i­cine” Por­tuguese Asso­ci­a­tion of Gen­eral Prac­ti­tion­ers — APMGF — is prepar­ing a con­fer­ence to explore the new trends of the spe­cialty. Gen­eral Prac­tice and Fam­ily Med­i­cine should renew itself, to guar­an­tee its future. And there­fore war­rant­ing peo­ples’ health care and patient safety. We need to assure that com­mu­nity health needs are ful­lled and GP’s are satised with their work. The foun­da­tion of 21st century’s health sys­tems must be more than ever Pri­mary Health Care.

    New trends and chal­lenges to Gen­eral Prac­tice /​Fam­ily Med­i­cine are being put for­ward by the rapidly chang­ing social and eco­nomic sit­u­a­tion in many parts of the world. Join us for the 19th WONCA Europe Con­fer­ence, where you will find an advanced sci­en­tic pro­gram with lots of talks, sem­i­nars, research pre­sen­ta­tions and dis­cus­sions. Main dis­cus­sions will focus on inno­va­tion, per­son­al­ized and com­pre­hen­sive care, knowl­edge man­age­ment, and what the new gen­er­a­tion of fam­ily doc­tors should expect and can do.

    The WONCA 2014 should end with some strong take-​home mes­sages. To reach that goal we need mul­ti­ple sources of evi­dence and dier­ent clin­i­cal expe­ri­ences. We need your work to be shared. The WONCA Con­fer­ence is a unique and unmiss­able oppor­tu­nity to meet face to face with col­leagues from dif­fer­ent parts of the world. It is a major con­tri­bu­tion for the devel­op­ment and con­silience of knowl­edge. We call all gen­eral practitioners/​family physi­cians, all the net­works and pri­mary care orga­ni­za­tions, to par­tic­i­pate in the enrich­ment of the sci­en­tific pro­gram, sub­mit­ting their works and orga­niz­ing spe­cial topic ses­sions or workshops.

    The pro­gram will be related to 4 main areas:

    • Inno­va­tion in pri­mary care
    • The new gen­er­a­tion of fam­ily doctors
    • Per­son­al­ized and com­pre­hen­sive care
    • Knowl­edge management

    In 2014 APMGF will be 30 years old. We would very much like to com­mem­o­rate the occa­sion together with our col­leagues from all over Europe, and the world.
