IX EURIPA Rural Health Forum

The IX EURIPA Rural Health Forum will be hosted by the Portuguese Association of General Practice and Family Medicine in the Azores.

Theme: Isolation and Rural Medicine: Innovation solutions for developing local health services

This scientific initiative aims to develop rural primary health care. The days beforehand will provide the opportunity for practical internships in local medicine, making home visits and consultations for urgent reasons.

During the Forum we will talk about acute illness, chronic illness and care strategies. We will have many practical workshops and discussion of international projects. There will be an opportunity to present a poster. The programme also includes visits to the clinics to know the health care of the island of Sao Miguel.

Because "a doctor who only knows medicine, not even medicine knows", we will offer a cultural show and, to end the event, a guided tour of the island.

All, rural or urban doctors, are invited to participate in this Forum. You can share experiences, gain knowledge and improve skills
