58th EQuiP Meeting (Online Conference)

EQuiP is organising a virtual conference, which will take place on 19-20 March 2021. The overall topic is: Quality and Safety of urgent primary care in Europe. 

The conference is aimed for general practitioners (GP), GP-trainees, teachers, trainers and policy makers. 

Participants will be able to discuss topics, such as patient safety, teaching quality and safety, quality of urgent care in Europe, augmented reality in teaching urgent care, triage and decision support, and palliative care.

EQuiP - the European Association for Quality and Patient Safety in General Practice/Family Medicine  - yearly organizes an international conference in one of the participating countries. However, due to the epidemiologic situation, this conference will be organised virtually. With it, EQuiP will highlight urgent primary care in Europe through a quality and safety lens

The conference will be a great opportunity to meet new people that are active in the field of quality and safety. It will also be a great opportunity to get new ideas for EQuiP itself, for topics that we can make a priority or for statements and opinions we should carry out. 

Up until now, EQuiP mainly focused on regular working practice. There’s a lack of knowledge and data on urgent care, so I’m thrilled that the organizers chose this topic. 

The conference is free of charge for everyone. 

We are looking forward to welcoming you at the conference!
