THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
Delegates at this conference will examine the potential for new ways of working to transform primary care, at a time when provision across Wales faces substantial pressures and as innovative new ways of working are developed to tackle the issues.
The seminar comes as the Welsh Government nears the end of its primary care service plan up to 2018 and as the Health, Social Care and Sport Committee carries out its inquiry into primary care. Delegates will discuss the role of different primary care services within the provision of care and the extent to which greater co-operation between branches of primary care could improve access and reduce workforce shortages.
They will also consider the potential for innovation within primary care to transform the provision of services. This includes the continuing development of GP Clusters and Multidisciplinary Teams, the success of schemes such as Choose Pharmacy in allowing pharmacists to play a greater role within primary care and the extent to which technological advancements within patient records, appointments and remote consultations are relieving pressures on services.
