Read the announcement for the 2nd International Congress on Controversies in Primary and Outpatient Care

The success of the 1st COPOC Congress which took place in Tel Aviv, Israel higlighted the importance of holding such a congress in order to continue to examine and debate specific issues practitioners face in day to day reality in primary and outpatient care.

The COPOC Congress gathers prominent global experts in general practice and primary health care for engaging discussions, information sharing and experience-based perspectives. The Congress will serve as a dynamic forum; promoting productive clinical debates between primary care phisicians, cinical specialists and researchers on the critical issues within the fields of general practice and primary health care.

The Congress prides itself on having the most up-to-date clinical, scientific and academic program, concentrating not only on future therapies and interventions, but also on disease prevention, health promotion and treatment goals. COPOC was established with the aim of playing a vital complementary role to the existing world and regional conferences relevant to primary care. Its goal is to promote state of tha art debates and to facilitate an effective forum between primary care physicians and practitioners and secondary care specialists.

The Congress’s distinct format will provide participants and speakers alike with the unique opportunity to debate the most pressing issues in general practice and primary health care.

We invite you to join us at the 2nd COPOC Congress and we look forward to seeing you in Zagreb in October 2017.
