Primary Care and Public Health Special Interest Group
The Primary Care and Public Health Special Interest Group was established in 2018 to provide a forum for public health clinicians, general practitioners, academics and anyone with an interest in primary care and public health collaboration to come together.
In particular to:
- Promote the greater collaboration of Primary Care and Public Health for the benefit of the populations we serve.
- Explore barriers and opportunities to improving place-based population health.
- Explore how health inequities can be addressed through community oriented primary care.
- Explore the translation of academic public health and primary care research into local public health policies.
- Advocate for GPs to access education and training in public health at all levels.
- Support each other and learn from each other.
- Collaborate on specific issues of policy, training, and education.
The Primary Care and Public Health Special Interest Group is chaired by Eleanor Turner-Moss and Kathrin Thomas. We run an active JISCMail group and hold regular online meetings and webinars. Please contact us at email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
