[en] Background: Past and current General Practice/ Family Medicine (GP/FM) meeting data is often lost. Or, when available, it is not managed in a proper way, making the retrieval of specific abstracts difficult. We argue that GP/FM suffers from a deficit of knowledge management (KM) which hinders the visibility as a scientific corpus.
Aim: Qualitative analysis of the 97 communications (including keynotes) exchanged during the 2018 congress of the WONCA Vasco De Gama group.
Methods : The analysis is performed with the software ATLAS.ti by an unique researcher, using the Core Content Classification of General Practice (3CGP) as an indexing system. The main domains of interest and the preoccupation of the participaning General Practitioners (GPs) have been examined, identified and coded using 3CGP, a mix of the International Classification of Primary Care (ICPC-2) and Q-Codes, a new classification of contextual features in General Practice / Family Medicine.
Results: The full database of communications is presented with the results of the coding process. The 97 communications allow one to identify 380 coding with 119 different Q-Codes and 102 coding with 79 ICPC-2 codes.
The purpose of this study is to identify areas of interest for physicians presenting at the VDGM 2018 Annual Conference. For comparison purposes, four 3CGP coded congresses are available. Various relations between communications, quotations and codes are presented and analyzed.
Conclusion: Qualitative techniques give a new visibility to young GPs’ domains of interest. We hope to open a new era of Knowledge Management of the productions of GPs, by giving a better visibility to the intensive and extensive responsibilities of GPs in Primary Care. We also hope, through this study, to make young GPs proud of the work they have done and open new horizons to them.
