Hundreds of rural practitioners from all over the world are gathering today in Heraklion, Crete for the 9th WONCA Rural Health Conference.
There’s a focus on four key themes – health inequalities, technology, island medicine and health services for immigrants. The full programme is available from the conference website, and we are hoping that some of the presentations might be available for later viewing, by those who couldn’t make it to sunny Crete.
One of our own editors (& chair of the RCGP Rural Forum) – Dr Malcolm Ward – is attending, and will be running a workshop to share experiences in developing better networking for rural GPs. There’s a healthy contingent of expertise attending from other parts of the UK too, as can be seen from the programme. Malcolm will be reporting on his conference experience to the RuralGP blog on returning to the UK.
RuralGP welcomes any comments or links with similar organisations in other countries. If you’re one of our international readers, please get in touch if you wish to share your presentation or comments with the RuralGP blog.
