Family practice development strategies : report on the second WHO Meeting of the Expert Network, Warsaw, Poland 23-25 October 1995
AbstractRegulations governing health care delivery are changing; accountability for the cost of services and their effectiveness is increasing while expectations of and demands from users are growing. These and other factors are influencing the manner in which primary health care is delivered today. Qualified family practice, as the basis for first contact with the health care system is the preferred model in many countries of the European Region. However, the challenge of how to adequately train for family practice is still to be met. While the first WHO Meeting of the Expert Network on Family Practice Development (Ljubljana, 26-28 January 1995) defined retraining of PHC-based health care professionals as a fundamental strategy for the development of family practice in CCEE, the aim of this second meeting was to review the current situation and experience of different European countries in implementing this strategy as well as existing recommendations to further develop family practice in general, and retrain in particular. The Network seeks to bring to the attention of European governments, universities, general practitioner associations and relevant bodies of the European Union, the issues of current and future concern in the field. Integration of the newly qualified family physician into health care systems today will demand the careful attention of the Network during 1996-1997
