Symptoms in Primary Care (SymPCa) conference, Sheffield

27th September 2019, 9:00am to 28th September 2019, 5:00pm

SymPCa is an interdisciplinary European conference which is held every other year. It aims to bring together clinicians and social scientists to consider how bodily sensations become symptoms, how people make decisions to consult, and what happens when symptoms persist or cannot be fully explained by simple disease models.

This year it’s in Sheffield (27-28 September) and the conference theme is Safe Effective Reassurance. This is a timely topic bearing in mind the steady escalation of diagnostic testing in primary care  SymPCa is a small (40-60 people) and friendly forum for sharing ideas about symptoms in primary care and how we manage them. It will be of interest to researchers (from both clinical and social science) and teachers.

The call for abstracts will be open between 1st March and 30th April and the website is now online.
