EURIPA members discuss topical issues through the list server. At regular intervals a themed disucssion, "Hot Topic", is started and after a specified interval a report produced from the collated responses. You can also contribute to the discussions through the web site.
The latest report on Hot Topic 7: the role of Rural GPs in the incorporation of Occupational Health in Primary Health Care is now available here.
Occupational Health is becoming an emerging issue for rural GPs, and key networks (like WHO, which will be informed about the results of this Hot Topic) are taking into consideration our strategic position as healthcare providers, encouraging rural practitioners to become involved with agricultural workers’ health care. Prof Claudio Colosio (University of Milan), who is one of the world’s most recognized experts in Occupational Health, has been so kind to design this survey for EURIPA.
