Emily Wersocki and David Jameson, SPCR trainees at Keele and Manchester Universities were awarded the 'Best research oral presentation' and 'Best research poster' prizes respectively at the SAPC North annual meeting on 26 & 27 November.

A meeting of primary care researchers in the north of England, this year's conference was organised by the University of Manchester and titled 'Primary Care - The next generation'.

Keynote speeches were given by Professor Val Wass on educating the next generation in primary care and Dr Julian Treadwell spoke about overdiagnosis in 'How can we solve the problem of too much medicine?' 

"There was a strong educational theme and a good number of medical students attended. It was a good meeting to network with others doing educational research as well as academic research" said Emily.

Emily's oral presentation 'A cohort study to investigate long term opioids for chronic non cancer pain in women and associated endocrine side effects' for which she won the award was co-authored by Emily Wersocki, John Bedson, Ying Chen, Linda LeResche and Kate M Dunn.
