The Australasian Association for Academic Primary Care (AAAPC) Annual Research Conference went online this year, and we were part of it!
Held over 14–15 August, this year’s conference saw 180 primary care researchers come together to share their research, discuss new ideas, and to network with like-minded colleagues.
There were presentations and posters that involved GP Synergy staff and academic registrars, as well as ReCEnT data/analyses presented by our collaborators.
