Highlighting the very basis of General Practice
The main theme of the NCGP2024 is General Practice – the bedrock of healthcare; respecting the core values. Each of our keynote lectures will focus on one of the core values approved by NFGP, together with a summary lecture on the core of family medicine.
We are proudly presenting our outstanding keynote speakers from all Nordic countries and Estonia with deep understanding of the core elements of our discipline.
CORE VALUE 2:
We provide timely diagnosis and avoid unnecessary tests and overtreatment. Disease prevention and health promotion are integrated into our daily activities.
How to balance risk and uncertainties in preventing overdiagnosis? GP, assistant professor Hálfdán Petursson will help us to gain more insight on this pressing matter.
CORE VALUE 6:
We recognise that social strain, deprivation, and traumatic experiences increase people’s susceptibility to disease, and we speak out on relevant issues.
Are there some hidden hierarchies, and how are those related to the quality of life? Tenured professor in social and health policy Juho Saari will walk us through the sixth core value.
SUMMARY LECTURE ON THE CORE OF FAMILY MEDICINE:
The President of Swedish College of General Practice, Magnus Isacson will conclude on these values in his summary lecture about the core of Family Medicine.
You are also welcome to share your own insights and expertise!
Call for abstracts, symposiums, and workshops are open. Deadline for symposium and workshop proposals is 30 November 2023, and abstract submission 15 January 2024.
