25th Annual National Family Practitioners Congress
18-19 August 2023 | The Wanderers Club, Illovo
The South African Academy of Family Physicians represents family physicians in both the private and public sectors throughout South Africa. Our annual national conference will be held on 18th-19th August 2023 at the Wanderer’s Club in Johannesburg, with pre-congress workshops on the 17th of August 2023.
The theme of the conference is “Integrating Primary Care – creating a more connected health and care system”.
Integrated care is an evidence-based and people-centred approach to enhance the quality, value and experience of care, improve population health and wellbeing, and increase job satisfaction in the workforce. We are all interconnected and interdependent. Therefore, we must engage with relevant stakeholders, adhere to good quality clinical practice and work towards comprehensive and holistic care.
With this in mind, we plan to focus on the following sub-themes during the conference:
Population health and local context – disease surveillance, health promotion, and preventative services
Sharing patient care – team-based care
Addressing multi-morbidity and long-term care
Building professional capacity for integrated care
The conference will provide sessions on clinical topics, talks by invited speakers, presentations of original research, discussions on ethics and poster presentations.
Overall, we expect 300 participants, 8 invited speakers in the parallel sessions, and 100 abstracts of original research. We offer a range of opportunities to engage with the participants and sponsor different aspects of the conference.
We invite you to participate as a sponsor and/or exhibitor at this congress. All sponsors and exhibitors will be offered exposure at the face-to-face congress as well as a dedicated exhibition space.
The congress attracts health professionals and family physicians in the public and private sectors as well as academic institutions.
We look forward to working with you at our congress.
