SAPC Hot Topic: Supporting the diversity of the APC workforce - recognising Primary Health Care Scientists

Academic primary care derives its strength from its multidisciplinary makeup, which provides the balance of methodological and topic expertise to support work which is relevant and timely. Diversity supports impact, but also creates a challenge to integrate and support the needs of a diverse group. This report describes the start of ongoing work  by SAPC to identify and support the specific needs of Primary Health Care scientists (the PHoCuS group). It focuses on the establishment of a mentorship scheme – now thriving and being expanded out to other SAPC members.
