IPCRG 7th Scientific meeting
The IPCRG was delighted to host our 7th IPCRG Scientific Meeting in Munich, Germany, from 15-16 May 2023 in conjunction with our German Group led by Univ.-Prof. Dr. med. Antonius Schneider. The meeting was preceded by an opt-in module on coding and analysis as part of a new introductory course in qualitative research, which is part of our drive to build research capacity in primary care.
Thank you to everyone who attended, presented, contributed to and made our 7th Scientific Meeting a success. With over 100 delegates and 48 presentations, numerous discussions and a smooth execution we are delighted that the Scientific Meeting in Munich provided a vital moment to come together as a global community of practice and respiratory research to learn from each other. IPCRG will continue to provide these opportunities to network and develop skills for the global respiratory primary care community, with the next date set for 9-11 May 2024 in Athens.
For attendees, there is still time to provide feedback by following the personal link sent to you by Erasmus, after which your attendance certificate will be sent to you.
The 7th IPCRG Scientific meeting, Munich, Germany, 14/05/2023-16/05/2023 has been accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME®) with 13 European CME credits (ECMEC®s). Each medical specialist should claim only those hours of credit that he/she actually spent in the educational activity.
Through an agreement between the Union Européenne des Médecins Spécialistes and the American Medical Association, physicians may convert EACCME® credits to an equivalent number of AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM. Information on the process to convert EACCME® credit to AMA credit can be found at www.ama-assn.org/education/earn-credit-participation-international-activities.
Live educational activities, occurring outside of Canada, recognised by the UEMS-EACCME® for ECMEC®s are deemed to be Accredited Group Learning Activities (Section 1) as defined by the Maintenance of Certification Program of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.
Following the evaluation of the European Board for Accreditation in Pneumonology (EBAP), the 7th IPCRG Scientific Meeting has been found worthy of accreditation by EBAP for 11.5 CME credits covering the whole program.

Congratulations to Lars Dijk from GPRI for his prize-winning abstract 'The influence of mixing inhaler devices on inhaler technique in COPD', selected from 48 abstracts and presentations!
The 6th IPCRG Scientific Meeting was held in Bucharest, Romania in 2019, after which we experienced an enforced break in our usual programme during the pandemic. However, we were able to host the IPCRG World Conference, in partnership with our Irish colleagues, online in 2021 and hosted virtual conference sessions in 2020. Our 11th World Conference was held in Malaga in May 2022. We are extremely pleased to be able to return to our normal schedule for face to face meetings and have committed to holding a Scientific Meeting in the ‘odd’ years when there is no IPCRG World Conference.
The conference took place at the Maritim Hotel, Munich, Germany.
