QUALICOPC: Quality and costs of primary care in Europe

Among other things, I’m taking part in this research project…”The QUALICOPC study aims to evaluate primary care systems in Europe against criteria of quality, equity and costs. The study answers what effects strong primary care systems have on the performance of overall healthcare systems. The study will collect data in 32 countries by means of surveys among general practitioners and patients. The study will also use data from the OECD/Eurostat System of Health Accounts; the OECD Healthcare Quality Indicators Project and the PHAMEU data base. The consortium for QUALICOPC consists of six partner institutes. By combining different data sources QUALICOPC will advance the state-of-the-art in primary care research.

And the sensation is how difficult (speaking about conditions) is to make research for young doctors in some countries…fortunately not for all of them and not for all the countries.

I can understand perfectly why many young doctors are worried about the future of medicine, not only for the satisfaction with their working situations or for the expectations about their careers, but also for the reality, is the health care system extremely broken? is there any hope? Are we going to do something about inequality? Should we care about it?

I have reading this great guide to actively involve young people in research, in my way to find some information to write something intelligent to shake my colleagues mind and try to make reflect policymakers and surprise! Everything is written down…


Let’s move! Let’s put it into practice!
