More than 1,600 GPs are expected to attend the event, now in its tenth year, which is renowned for attracting inspirational speakers as well as offering practical CPD of the highest quality.
This year’s theme of Forward Together has been chosen to meet the developing needs of GPs across the UK, as practices merge and group together and professional boundaries blur.
The concurrent learning sessions will be organised within ten main streams, including two new streams for this year: Healthcare Technology and Health and Wellbeing.
The concurrent session streams for 2017 are:
Campaigning for General Practice Updates and debate on new and existing government policy and its impact
Career Development Creating and engaging the GPs of the future
Clinical Learning Practical knowledge updates on hot topics in everyday clinical care
Forward Together How we lead primary care to the next level
Health and Wellbeing Lifestyle changes to enhance your personal and professional wellbeing
Healthcare Technology Taking advantage of new technologies to develop innovative patient services
Mental Health Focus In depth practical sessions addressing mental health in the GP consultation
Professional Education Developing educators and encouraging the next generation
Research and Innovation Latest findings and practical implementation of primary care research
Supporting Doctors Helping GPs in the UK and internationally to provide high quality care, meet standards and develop special interests
The Short Papers stream will deliver quickfire presentations of the latest research relevant to primary care. You can submit abstracts for this stream, and enter your posters, from February 2017.
