WONCA Asia Pacific conference 2020 - call for abstracts

You are invited to submit abstracts and proposals for oral and poster presentations and for workshops that are in keeping with the themes of this, the WONCA Asia Pacific Regional Conference 2020, which is to be hosted jointly by The Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners' and the New Zealand Rural General Practice Network.

The overarching theme for the conference is: "Family Medicine, leading the way towards an advanced world of equity, quality and compassion"

The essence of this theme is captured in the Māori whakataukī: Ko te pae tawhiti whāia kia tata, ko te pae tata whakamaua kia tina

Which translates to "Seek distant horizons in pursuit of excellence".

During the conference we will explore the scientific and human contributions we can make to create a future that embraces progress, while retaining the core values needed to move us towards the goal of equal health for all.

This conference will be an ideal opportunity to meet colleagues both from New Zealand, from around the region and beyond. You will learn, discuss, debate and importantly share your practical knowledge, experience and wisdom.

The conference will include the following sub themes:
• Clinical research that informs daily practice
• Ways to achieve a more equitable future with equal health outcomes for all
• All aspects of Quality Improvement
• The importance of compassion, of continuity of care and other core values of family practice
• Innovation in health care delivery, integration
