‘Medical generalists –bringing forward a brighter future’ is the official theme of this conference. Generalist discipline is the most important but least appreciated discipline in many regions across the globe. Evidence of the health-promoting influence of primary care has been accumulating ever since researchers have been able to distinguish primary care from other aspects of the health services delivery system and main players of primary care are the generalists.

The main theme of our conference is “General practice - the Human Side of Medicine“. We believe that family doctors have to work on human and personal lifelong relations with their patients. More open relationshiphelps family doctors to increase the quality of prevention and care. To take care of our patients is more than just to diagnose them and to treat them. It also means tailoring the diagnostic process and treatment to the needs of our patients, avoiding overdiagnosing and overtreatment.
