WE GO VIRTUAL

Dear colleagues,

Since the COVID-19 pandemic is going on with traveling restrictions and rules for social distancing we are not able to run a conference with presence in Berlin. This is sad but your safety is our highest priority. In order to maintain our work as family doctors as well as researchers and teachers we think that we can offer an excellent solution.

We have switched to a totally virtual conference with a changed time frame. Many presentations will have real time recording with possibility of immediate discussion. There will be five parallel slots from Wednesday December 16th 14:45 CET to Saturday, December 19th 14:15 with workshops only in the morning time on Thursday and Friday and all other formats in the afternoons or on Saturday morning. All other accepted presentations will be presented in our virtual library. These as well as all presentations recorded in real time can be viewed until the end of January at times of your free choice. So you have the chance to see much more presentations compared to recent years and thus you can collect a lot of CME credit points. We encourage you to come into direct contact with presenters if you have questions or proposals, especially for collaboration. This also includes the possibility to privately organize virtual meetings or workshops outside the conference platform with your own technical possibilities.

Although this is a very uncommon date we think that this is a good opportunity to reflect on the experiences of this year and to celebrate all the heroes working in our offices of General Practice/Family Medicine/Primary Health Care.

With our best regards and hoping to meet all of you during our virtual conference!

WELCOME MESSAGE

Dear collegues and friends/cooperators of family medicine,,

you are cordially invited to attend the conference of The European Conference of Family Doctors (organised by DEGAM, WONCA member) in Berlin. Our national congress of Germany will be integrated in this great event. At present we have to change our plans according to the actual situation but we should not forget to stay into contact and exchange our experiences and ideas.

Berlin is a vibrant City with a very special history. Many of us remind the unexpected fall of the wall which divided the City and Europe. Now it as a mulitcultural location and bridge between former western and eastern Europe. But it has much more to offer for science and culture, for personal meetings and questions about our future. You may attend the conference and practices, you can go for sightseeing and relax, you will get new ideas, inspirations and connections. We will reflect on core values of family medicine: how can we manage threats and use opportunities for a good health system and satisfaction of all persons beeing involved including ourselves? How has COVID-19 pandemia changed our lifes and how best can we manage the present and future sitation? Come to Berlin in December 2020 and join our community!

Prof. Dr. med. Erika Baum
President WONCA Europe Conference 2020

Prof. Dr. med. Christoph Heintze
Co-Chair WONCA Europe Conference 2020
