Update on EURACT’s contribution
EURACT will be well represented at WONCA Europe’s conference in Prague in 2017. Discussions are underway about topics for workshops. The Specialty Training Group are planning a workshop on Teaching leadership in Family Medicine which will explore different approaches to this challenging and important topic. The Continuing Medical Education group are considering running a workshop which will develop the ongoing work on empowering doctors to use modern technology whilst still remaining patient centred.
EURACT represents WONCA Europe in the EU funded PREPARE project which seeks to ensure that Europe is research ready for the next pandemic. Workshops will be delivered on the use of personal protective equipment in family medicine and also on the role of the Family Doctor in promoting universal vaccine uptake.
We look forward to meeting with colleagues from the other WONCA networks in Prague and continuing to develop useful collaborations.


Myths and legends of magical Prague
Streets paved with cobblestones, long shadows stretching from glowing lanterns, the wind playing with the coloured leaves and the dark outlines of the Gothic cathedrals. This is magical Prague, a city shrouded in countless myths and legends from its thousand years of history. Set out on the trail of its mythical inhabitants and creatures to unusual places which go to make up the unique character of this city on the banks of the Vltava.
