WONCA Europe Bratislava- March news

Dr Michaela Macháčová, president of the 24th WONCA Europe Conference 2019, writes about the conference coming to Bratislava, Slovakia from June 26 - 29, 2019.

Dear Colleagues,

I am delighted to inform you that the preparation for the WONCA Europe Conference 2019, to be held this year in Bratislava from June 26 to June 29, 2019, is in full swing.

For us, general practitioners, this is a unique opportunity to take part in such major event, to meet colleagues from around the world, share with them their experience and move our primary care in the right direction.

In these times of intense scientific research and technological changes, the human side of medicine is becoming more and more important.

Therefore the main theme of our conference became “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 relationship helps 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. Health and happiness can´t be experienced individually, alone, but in a healthy and happy human society only.

For the Slovak Society of General Practice, it was a historical moment, when we faced a strong competition and for the first time we won the opportunity to organize a European conference in our country, in Slovakia.

The SSGP Organizing Committee and PCO GUARANT International are intensively working on a science and organizational program. The Scientific Committee of the Conference, which also consists of leading foreign experts for primary practice, is intensively preparing an attractive program. The key messages will be presented by 6 renowned leaders not only from abroad but also from Slovakia.

The Conference will be held in Bratislava, in the attractive surroundings of the new building of the Slovak National Theatre, the Sheraton hotel and the Cinemax city Eurovea. The students of medical university are ready to help you with everything, both organization arrangements and great feeling in exploring the town of Bratislava. They can speak English, German and Spanish.

One of the medical attractions will be Skillslab, where you can improve your skills in POCT, USG, practical visits and more :)

We recommend you to enjoy morning walking workshop with Slovak gold Olympic winner Matej Toth, he is prepared and looks forward to spending time with you during walks in beautiful places along the river of Danube.

Together with the organizational and scientific team, I look forward to meeting you soon.

Bratislava is ready to go :)
