Holding a Primary Care Panel Discussion

Many AMSA chapters elect to hold a panel discussion on Primary Care. This may supplement or take the place of any of the daily themes suggested for this year’s NPCW. Below, you will find ideas to direct this panel.

  • Invite various members of a health care team to discuss their roles in patient care
  • Focus on a specific issue: palliative, substance abuse, HIV/AIDS, Medicare & Medicaid, the impact of healthcare reform
  • Invite an obstetrician/gynecologist, internist, OB/GYN nurse practitioner, and/or family practitioner who has definite views about the issue of women’s health to discuss the topic: who is best prepared to serve the primary care needs of women or sponsor a debate discussing “making women’s health a specialty.”
