Bringing Family Medicine to Clinical Research

The World Organization of Family Doctors (WONCA) reports that 600,000 family doctors in 150 countries provide 3 billion consultations each year. General practice/family medicine (GP/FM) is the core discipline of primary medical care and the cornerstone of many healthcare systems in Europe. The vast majority of European citizens have a general practitioner (GP), who is a first-contact physician in case of health problems. Unfortunately, very few of them are involved in clinical research. Janusz Kabata MD, and Bohdan Tillack MSc, MBA at MedConsult with Paweł Kabata MD, PhD at MedSource Polska share their thoughts on how to bring family medicines to clinical research.
