Dublin 2016

45th annual scientific meeting

6th–8th July 2016 at Dublin Castle

Conference chair: Professor Tom Fahey, Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland

The SAPC annual conference brings together researchers and educators from the primary care community to showcase their latest studies on any aspect or issues relating to primary care. This is a great opportunity for you to share your work, join the conversation and shape the future of primary care. 

We have an excellent line up of keynote speakers and the remainder of the programme will consist of presentations of submitted abstracts as oral presentations, elevator pitches and posters. We have a number of bursaries and prizes on offer.  

The social programme will start with a welcome drinks reception in College Hall at the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland on Wednesday 6th July and continues with the conference dinner in the spectacular Round Room at The Mansion House on Thursday 7th July 2016.

We look forward to welcoming you.
