1. EGPRN Pre-conference Workshop "Writing for Publication – Meet the Editors for Tips and Tricks!".
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".
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"
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.
4. EGPRN Pre-Conference Workshop "How to make a good abstract"
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.
