You&EFPC (Young Primary Care Experts)

The EFPC Working Group for Young Primary Care Experts (You&EFPC) is a sub-committee of European Forum for Primary Care.

The main aims of the EFPC Working Group for Young Primary Care Experts are

1. To represent young primary care experts in the EFPC

2. To contribute to the EFPC working groups dedicated to specific sub-themes about Primary Care such as Interprofessional Education, Mental Health, Community Health Centers, etc....

The initial working group started in January 2016 focusing on the following activities:

1. Explore a clear role and way of involvement for young PC experts in the EFPC

2.Creation of a business model of the process and content of the integration of the young experts in the EFPC

3. The implementation of the business model agreed with EFPC Executive Board

6-7 members constitute the initial group. Besides, senior members of EFPC can be regularly consulted to review the progress, and EFPC secretariat provides support to the group activities and meetings. The working group meets approximately every two months (mainly online) and requires few hours of voluntary (unpaid) work.

Due to the excellent work of this group. Last year it took place the first You&EFPC conference meeting, which took place on the previous day to the opening of the main EFPC conference in Porto 2017.
