A new article is now available at the official journal of the EFPC Primary Health Care Research and Development.

The article: The establishment and functioning of the PRIMORE (European PRImary care MultiprOfessional REsearcher network) Project, states the need for multi professional comprehensive studies to better understand the relationship between design and provision of primary care and long-term care and health outcomes. The PRIMORE (PRImary care MultiprOfessional REsearcher network) project aims at bringing together researchers with different backgrounds and from a wide range of professional groups within the fields of primary care research and long-term care research to develop and share knowledge for the benefit of research on municipal health and care services, and eventually, the quality of municipal health and care in Europe. Main activities of the Project will be network development, capacity building, providing a platform where multiprofessional primary care research activities can take place and publishing position papers.

This skills co-building preconference aims to share experiences, findings and track solutions regarding the integration of public health and primary care through education and training of primary care and public health professionals in different countries.

The preconference is organised to be interactive, to mix experiences from the practice, the academic and the organizational side with a European perspective and mix alternatively plenaries and subgroup exchanges. Speakers will bring examples and ideas as material for sub-group discussions.

The EFPC provided its compliments with this highly ambitious agenda. From the Primary Care perspective many points are relevant and very much supported by the EFPC.

Dear EFPC members,

We would like to inform you that for our upcoming EFPC General Assembly which will be held on the 30th of September in Nanterre. There are nine positions available within our Advisory Board.

The EFPC would like to invite members interested in joining the Board for the next 3 years to come up with a nomination or submit your interest!

If you would like to know more about what it means to become an EFPC Advisory Board, please have a look at the following document! Besides, you can also check our webpage to have a look at our actual Board composition.
 

Primary care is significantly impacted by caring for increasingly complex populations. Effectively managing aging patients and chronic conditions requires that primary care professionals acquire new skills to build engaged teams in primary care to help “share the care.” Moving to more team-based models requires primary care professionals to assume leadership roles and have a clear vision to guide their team.

  • What do you want to change for a better mental health service in primary care?
  • What is, in your opinion, the most urgent problem related to mental healthcare?
  • Does the problem lie with the inequality of the model of care, or something else?
  • Where are the solutions?

The launch meeting of the PRIMORE project was held in Utrecht on March 28-29, 2019. Over forty participants from all over Europe and from multiple disciplines within primary care joined us in an unusual and inspiring setting at Einde Gooi and Naardermeer, small nature reserves in the Netherlands.
