Welcome to our next EQuiP conference, where we will embark on an exciting journey to explore the profound relationship between Primary Care and Public Health and the pivotal role of General Practitioners (GPs) as influential leaders in Primary Care.
The Covid pandemic has unequivocally emphasized the critical nature of this relationship in providing safe and comprehensive care to our population. GPs and primary care practices have been instrumental in narrowing the growing health inequity gap throughout the pandemic. They have played a vital role in executing successful vaccination campaigns, ensuring the continuity of care for elderly patients and those with chronic conditions, and much more.
We firmly believe that these lessons learned during the pandemic will continue to hold significant importance in the future. The Quintuple Aim for Health Care Improvement underscores the importance of enhancing population health, improving the care experience, reducing costs, prioritizing the well-being of caregivers, and advancing health equity. Collaboration between GPs, Primary Care, and Public Health is indispensable in achieving these goals.
Join us in the vibrant city of Gent, a place brimming with energy and inspiration. Share your invaluable experiences, learn from our esteemed keynote speakers, and connect with fellow practitioners who embody exceptional practices. Together, let us ignite a spark of motivation that will propel us towards a brighter future.
We eagerly anticipate the arrival of spring when we will have the pleasure of meeting each and every one of you. Get ready for an enriching conference that will leave you invigorated and ready to make a lasting impact!
