Meet our members - Romania

03 Nov 2021

IPCRG now has 37 full membership countries and it is our aim through our country groups to make a difference locally through sharing ideas globally. This feature of meet the member we think will strengthen the bonds in our network and provide inspiration for each other. Each country arose from different origins and has a different structure. Through these interviews we can understand what each country wants to achieve and how they plan to do it.

Today we meet RespiRO and we hear from Catalina Panaitescu, Family Doctor in Bucharest. Catalina will tell us how RespiRO started, their first project, more about primary care education and research in Romania. She also talks about IPCRG's 6th Scientific Meeting Bucharest 2019, strengthening primary care in Romania, including the wider team, working with patients and the public and the impact of COVID. Finally she has some advice for new IPCRG country members.
