Vision of the Nordic Congresses of General Practice*

To become one of the world’s most renowned arenas for stimulating the development of high-quality and innovative primary health care, with particular reference to the professional environment in the Nordic welfare systems.

Mission

To create a renowned, inspiring and identity-shaping professional arena for GPs and other professionals involved in primary health care.

To attract a wide range of participants: practicing clinicians at any point of their professional careers including young doctors on their way to become GPs, researchers, teachers, and administrators. This means that the professional content of the congresses should be wide-ranging and involve:


  • Clinical updates on best practice (e.g., clinical symposia focusing on relevant evidence regarding specific medical conditions).
  • Presentation of recent and ongoing research in primary health care (e.g., free-standing papers, research-oriented symposia presenting empirical research as well as theory development).
  • Opportunities for critical reflection regarding the current status and future development of the discipline (e.g., by way of cutting-edge plenary sessions and symposia).
  • Opportunities to discuss issues concerning educational programs and research activities for young doctors in primary health care.

To draw attention to the messages from the congresses:

  • To encourage relevant congress contributors (such as keynote speakers) to submit their contributions to the SJPHC (e.g. in the education and debate section) or other relevant journals.
  • To facilitate contact between congress contributors and local/national mass media etc. (systematic PR strategy, press releases, etc.).

To maintain a high standard regarding practical arrangements, such as announcements, information content (home pages, etc). 

To create an enjoyable and rewarding social arena facilitating genuine personal contact and networking among congress participants.

* This vision and mission statement has been accepted by The Nordic Federation of General Practice.
