Clinical, organisational, policy, educational and methodological research for the primary care of the future

40th anniversary revisit of the Alma-Ata declaration on primary health care.

Come and join us

The University of Exeter Collaboration for Academic Primary Care (APEx) are delighted to be hosting the 48th Annual Scientific Meeting of the Society for Academic Primary Care (SAPC)

This annual conference showcases the latest research and education in academic primary care from the UK and around the world in keynote presentations, parallel sessions of verbal presentations, posters, workshops and symposia. The programme will also feature lightning presentations (short 5 minute slots), poster pitches and a creative arts stream.

The declaration of Alma-Ata of 1978 was of landmark importance in respect of primary care. Not only did the declaration incorporate an important definition of primary health care, but political and strategic action was encouraged for governments around the world. Primary care as a clinical and scientific discipline has continued to develop globally since that time.

Late 2018 sees a renewed vision for primary health care in the WHO Astana declaration, and in light of this, our conference theme considers whether primary care has now “arrived” or is “departing” with important work still to do, areas to develop, and healthcare systems to influence. Globally, primary care still offers great advantages for patients, populations, and the global public at large.

With the ongoing rise of chronic illness, keynotes addressing the challenge of the tide of diabetes and the importance of antimicrobial resistance will provide an important platform for our scientific consideration. Set against this, a view from the inside regarding the revised Alma-Ata declaration will provide the platform for an exciting, probing, and relevant conference exploring the evidence base for our clinical discipline.

We look forward to welcoming you to Exeter in July 2019.

Audience
