AMA Family Doctor Week, 19- 25 July 2015

16 Jul 2015

Next week is AMA Family Doctor Week, a celebration of the hard work and dedication of GPs across Australia and a reminder to the community of the vital role played by local family doctors in keeping Australians healthy.

This year’s theme is You and Your Family Doctor: the best partnership in health. It promotes the important and unique role that family doctors play in the provision of patient centred care. The AMA Family Doctor Week 2015 poster highlighting this year’s theme is available to download and display in your reception areas and consulting rooms, and on your websites.

Book your seat now to attend the AMA President's National Press Club Address in Canberra on Wednesday 22 July 2015. Professor Brian Owler will use his speech to outline priorities to strengthen the Australian health system. Acknowledging the political and economic realities that confront Governments, Professor Owler will set out practical, affordable, and achievable policies and actions that the AMA believes will best serve the health needs of the Australian population.

Additional events and activities planned during Family Doctor Week, include:

  • AMA Family Doctor Week 2015 youtube videos.
  • Daily media releases highlighting general practice issues.
  • A general practice themed edition of the Medical Journal of Australia.
  • General practice themed articles in Australian Medicine
