International experts on medical generalism to speak at Conference for General Practice
The Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners has announced the first international keynote speakers at its Conference for General Practice to be held in Wellington in July.
‘We’re delighted to be welcoming to our conference George Freeman, Emeritus Professor of General Practice at Imperial College London’, says Conference Committee Chair, Dr Mark Peterson. ‘He has an international reputation as an expert in continuity of care and has been working with our colleagues at the Royal College of GPs on their new Commission on Generalism. I’m sure he’ll have much to share with us on his vision for the future of general practice.
‘Professor Michael Kidd will be joining us from Australia. He is President-Elect of the World Organization of Family Doctors and Executive Dean of the Faculty of Health Sciences at Flinders University. We’re particularly looking forward to his insights on indigenous health within general practice, which is his special area of interest.
‘We’re also well under way with appointing an exciting panel of other leading experts in generalism, which will add enormous value to the programme.’
The Conference for General Practice 2013 takes as its theme ‘Generalism: The heart of health care’. It will be held from 11 to 13 July at the Michael Fowler Centre in Wellington.
