Sparkling Dangerous Ideas in Dublin at SAPC ASM 2016

The 5th annual SAPC Dangerous Ideas soapbox saw 6 speakers propose a range of ideas to improve primary care.These included the reorganisation of community pharmacy together with the reinstatement of generalist leadership. Offered alongside partly-tongue-in-cheek critiques of current opiod prescribing, care for the homeless, shared decision making and 'moaning' GPs.
