SIG on Complexities in Health activities in Istanbul

The WONCA Special Interest Group on Complexities in Health will run three workshops at this year’s WONCA Europe conference in Istanbul. Building on our successful previous workshops we invite this year’s WONCA attendees to join our workshops on improved health delivery frameworks and primary care education conducted by Joachim Sturmberg, Bruno Kissling, Jim Price and Rick Botelho.

Come early to the workshops – our Lisbon workshop on Multimorbidity attracted so much interest that we had to turn people away. This workshop, to the great surprise of the presenters and participants, was also showcased at the daily conference review.
