IPCRG and WONCA
The IPCRG is the Special Interest Group (SIG) for Respiratory Care for the global family doctor association WONCA Europe and an Organisation in Collaborative Relations with WONCA global. We run the respiratory programme at WONCA Europe meetings, and are tasked with offering advice to WONCA Europe on respiratory matters. We also ran sessions at WONCA World in Rio, 2016. Miguel Roman, an IPCRG Past President was elected in 2012 as European Doctor of the Year, a competition run by WONCA, following nomination by the Spanish WONCA member, semFYC, and the IPCRG. We issued a position statement on Treating Tobacco Dependence, endorsed by WONCA Europe in 2017 and published in our peer-reviewed journal npj Primary Care Respiratory Medicine.
