1. EGPRN Pre-conference Workshop "Writing for Publication – Meet the Editors for Tips and Tricks!".
Scheduled on Thursday 11th, morning 10.00-12.30 hrs.
Time taken: 2½ hours
Moderators: Jelle Stoffers1, Hans Thulesius2

Jelle Stoffers is the Editor-in-Chief of the European Journal of General Practice (EJGP), the official scientific journal of Wonca Europe. Hans Thulesius is the National Editor for Sweden of the Scandinavian Journal of Primary Health Care. If you are interested in 'writing for publication', you are invited to join their workshop.

Background: Peer reviewed medical journals are important media for the publication of articles relevant to Primary Health Care and General Practice/Family Medicine, such as research papers, reviews of literature, clinical lessons, and opinion papers. They are the means to disseminate original research results and educational information, discuss available evidence and share experiences. However, many colleagues find writing and submitting a scientific paper a challenge.

Aim: In this workshop, we aim at providing participants with information about preparing manuscripts for medical journals. Our intended audience are authors interested in research or medical writing and with little or no previous experience in publishing. More experienced authors are welcome to join this workshop to share their experiences.

Methods: The workshop has the format of a highly interactive session. It focuses on the preparation and submission of research papers. Topics discussed are the basic structure, language and presentation of research papers, as well as common errors and how to prevent them. In addition, the peer review process is discussed. Furthermore, we address issues like: How to write an adequate Abstract? What is an informative Title? What should a convincing Cover Letter look like? Optional topics: choosing the right journal, (dis)advantages of open access journals, authorship and potential conflicts of interest, or the organisation of your writing project.

Outcome: Participants will have expanded their knowledge and will have received practical advice ("tips & tricks") on how to prepare a manuscript for publication in a peer-reviewed medical journal.

2. EGPRN Pre-Conference Workshop "How to Start Building GP Research in a low capacity country. A Manual/Cookbook".
Scheduled on Thursday 11th, morning 10.00-12.30 hrs..
Time taken: 2½ hours
Moderators: Lieve Peremans and Hilde Bastiaens (Belgium); University Antwerp - Primary and Interdisciplinary Care.

Within the EGPRN Research agenda, a manual on how to start GP research in a country with low capacity for GP research will be included. The aim is to advise countries which are in a process of building general practice and/or who have little or no experience or skills in GP research (and possibly little infrastructure) on :

• How to start – how not to start,

• What classical errors to avoid,

• Understand what implications your choice has

The different topics of this manual will be presented and discussed: planning of research, basic requirements, need for infrastructure, research courses, identify needs in your country, choose priorities and subjects, methodologies.

3. EGPRN Pre-Conference Workshop "Everyday Practice and Evidence Based Medicine"
Scheduled on Thursday 11th, afternoon 14.00-16.30 hrs.
Time taken: 2½ hours
Moderators: Vytautas Kasiulevicius and Antanas Bliūdžius (Lithuania); Clinic of internal diseases, family medicine and oncology, Faculty of of Medicine, Vilnius University, Vilnius, Lithuania; Email:  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
Vytautas Kasiulevičius is professor of Vilnius University, practicing GP, interested in evidence based medicine in primary care. Antanas Bliūdžius is last year family medicine resident in Vilnius University who interested in evidence based medicine and IT introduction to routine practice. If you are interested in ‘Everyday practice and evidence based medicine’, you are invited to join their workshop.

Background: Despite increased accessibility, a gap continues to exist between the published scientific evidence literature and the actual use that evidence in the everyday practice of health care professionals. Evidence-based medicine (EBM) is not optimally practiced in clinical environments because of multiple barriers, including difficulty transferring EBM skills to clinical practice.

Aim: to identify barriers that impact the implementation of EBP in the health care setting. The purpose of this study is to identify all the barriers encountered by GPs in the use of EBM in clinical practice.

Methods: The workshop focuses on the discussion about barriers for evidence-based practice and ways to change this situation. We will discuss those topics: Whether there is opposition between patient oriented and evidence based medicine? Where evidence based medicine limitations and strength? What barriers hinder the deployment of evidence-based practice? How to effective spread evidence based practice in primary care seating?
Outcome: Participants will deepen their knowledge and get practical advice on evidence-based medicine.

 

4. EGPRN Pre-Conference Workshop "How to make a good abstract"
Scheduled on Thursday 11th, afternoon 14.00-16.30 hrs.
Time taken:     2½ hours
Moderators: Ruth Kalda and Anneli Rätsep (Estonia); Institute of Family Medicine and Public Healt, University of Tartu, Estonia
Backround: Abstracts of scientific papers or for workshops are often poorly written, lack important information, and are not well structured. However, the abstract is the only part of the paper that a potential reviewer will see when is invited to assess and select the presentations to the conference. The abstract is also the only part of the paper that readers see when they search through electronic databases such as PubMed.

Aim: To improve the knowledge how to write a good abstract for the conference or for the scientific publication. The primary target of this workshop is the young researcher or practical family doctor who lacks the writing knowledge and skills.

Content of the workshop: This workshop gives detailed suggestions, with examples, for writing the background, methods, results, and conclusions sections of a good abstract. We will discuss about the general qualities of the good abstract, read the papers with some examples, and make group discussions, peer-discussions and individual work. Participants are expected to be active learners.

The computerisation of the primary care patient records of the Catalan Health Institute was completed in 2005 and was developed the SIDIA database. SIDIAP was designed to provide a valid and reliable database of selected information from clinical records of patients registered in primary care centres for use in biomedical research.
SIDIAP contains anonymized data of patients for more than five million people registered in 287 primary healthcare practices throughout Catalonia.
SIDIAP includes data collected by health professionals during routine visits in primary care, including anthropometric measurements, diagnoses (International Classification of Diseases 10th revision [ICD-10]), laboratory tests, treatments, hospital referrals, demographic and lifestyle information.. The high quality of these data has been previously documented, and SIDIAP has been successfully applied to epidemiological studies.

There is no charge for this workshop. Participants can eat their lunch during the workshop. Please bring your lunchbox.
