Draft charter for general practice/family medicine in Europe : report on a WHO meeting, Copenhagen, Denmark 6-7 February 1998
AbstractThe Meeting, convened to finalize the text of the document, was attended by representatives of professional associations and societies concerned with general practice/family medicine, representatives of the medical and nursing professions as a whole, and experts who had contributed to the preparation of the draft Charter. The Meeting discussed the concepts and intentions of the document, the results of a collaborative study on the work of general practitioners in 31 countries, and the feedback from the consultation process on the draft discussion document, which was circulated in 1995 to a large number of national and international professional associations, colleges and scientific societies and was also discussed in several meetings, workshops and conferences. It was agreed to make it clear that the document addressed issues related to the characteristics and profile of general practitioners as professionals, and was not intended to describe general practice or primary health care as a whole. A number of specific points were discussed and agreed on. It was agreed to change the title of the document to Framework for professional and administrative development of general practice/family medicine in Europe. The participants stressed the need to disseminate the document to as wide an audience as possible
