Empowering Primary Care through Diversity
The EFPC association is happy to announce its 2020 annual conference with a focus on diversity. This links not only to the diverse society we live in, but also to many other aspects of life and health care in particular. A diverse society requires different approaches in care provision and a wide range of professionals whom can work with people from all over the world. Each individual whom presents him/herself at Primary Care level brings his/her own experiences, goals and motives. Hence, presenting one disease results automatically in different perspectives and each patient needs a different approach. Searching for different approaches has, for many years, led us to interesting new techniques in care provision like using art, sports or cooking. The same is valid when we try to teach or convince colleagues the various ways in which they can provide care for patients. A one-direction approach is very limited and will not have the same effect as using a variety of approaches.
The EFPC membership in itself is diverse and to celebrate this we are going to highlight this wonderful feature of our association. Join us to take advantage of this diverse group of people and share your stories with us, which are most probably different from those of everybody else. Have a look at the different themes suggested by the scientific committee.
Your uniqueness is the diversity at our #EFPC 2020 Ljubljana conference!
