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.
