Please see the final program for "One-slide-5 minutes" presentations and for classic poster presentations. 

See Presentation Guidelines here.

The overall theme of the WONCA Europe 2016 is:

Family Doctors with Heads and Hearts

GPs work in the border-land between medical science and humanity. We must keep our balance and work with our heads and hearts.

The specific themes are:

The ageing Europe:

Europe's population has changed and will change and what does that mean? Are there variations across countries? What about the family structure, income, education? Will there be more diseases or do we live longer and better?

Making healthcare affordable:

The health care system will change dramatically towards more specialised care, higher costs, more fragmented care etc. How will general practice fit into this? What can family medicine do to preserve and develop its core functions and values?

The future consultation:

How will general practice develop, what will the content and task be and how will we be able to put science, knowledge into that. How will general practice be able to address future developments and expected tasks?

Diagnosing - a vital task for Family medicine:

We get more and more focused on our ability to identify physiological changes and risks early, to use technology, and to put together many specialities around the table discussing the patient (who is not there). What about family medicine? How should diagnosing develop there?

Inequality in health and specific patient groups:

We focus on the possible risk of increasing inequality in health and access to health care in Europe. Both social, mental and age based inequality. We see inequality based on social differences, among specific disease groups like mental diseases and for children and elderly people.
