28th Janko Kersnik International Euract Bled Course


Bled, Slovenia: September 17-21st, 2019


Health is an important value in our society and medicine has an important role to play in preserving and restoring health. However, there are trends in society, like healthism, that place disproportionate emphasis on health using both lifestyle changes, such as diet and exercise, and the resources of medicine, such as medication and surgery, in order to express this. In this course, we will attempt to define a balanced view of health and disease in order to help doctors cope with the unbalanced demand for health at all costs in their practices. We will stress the importance of this topic in the education of medical students and trainees.

At the end of this course the learner will be able to design a teaching module on the tyranny of health in family medicine.


Abstracts of oral presentations of new developments in family medicine/general practice education should be sent to bulc.mateja@gmail.com by July 15, 2019.
Course directors will review the abstracts and will notify you on the acceptance of the presentation till August 31, 2019.
