The North American Primary Care Research Group's (NAPCRG) 43rd annual meeting is currently taking place in Cancun, Mexico where primary care researchers and trainees are gathering to present SPCR funded studies.

Collaborating and fostering new growth in primary care research

For the first time, the NAPCRG programme committee have invited applications from primary care researchers who have yet to yield findings. The 'Late-Breaking High Impact Research Category' is a new option for researchers intended for high impact and/or large studies that are in the process of gathering data, and will have data collection and analysis completed in time for presentation at the fall meeting. 

Distinguished paper award

Grace Moran won the Distinguished Paper Award this year. This is the first year of the award which selects authors from the top twenty rated abstracts and reviews their publications. Final papers are selected for presentation at the conference. SPCR trainee, Grace Moran,  presented her paper on Sunday afternoon.
