The RACGP’s annual conference will be going fully digital in 2020, bringing GPs from across the country together online.

GP20 will run in a new digital format from 16–28 November.

It has been a big year for GPs as the first line response to the coronavirus pandemic.
 
As a result, GP20 – the RACGP’s annual conference for GPs – is going to look a little different as its format turns digital.
 
Running from 16–28 November, the program will feature a range of digital session formats, including a selection of live presentations, as well as on-demand content that can be viewed at any time over the course of two weeks.
 
Topics that will be covered include:

  • clinical updates
  • the latest research
  • how the profession has managed COVID-19
  • lessons from the pandemic and other disasters, and the role of general practice
  • ways to embrace new technologies and innovations in the digital space.
Australia’s Deputy Chief Medical Officer and past RACGP President, Professor Michael Kidd, is among the panellists confirmed to be presenting at GP20.
 
The GP20 Program Committee and RACGP Expert Committee – Research is calling on GPs to submit their research abstracts for consideration.
 
They are seeking innovative and highly engaging submissions on topics that are relevant to GPs in their everyday settings.
 
Presentations are to be delivered in one of three preferred styles:
 
  • 15-minute presentations
  • Three-minute lightening talks
  • ePoster presentations
Given the different format this year, the RACGP Events team will work with all presenters to guide them on how to present to a live digital audience, or delivering a pre-recorded presentation for on-demand viewing.
 
GPs can register their interest and view the conference program on the RACGP’s GP20 website.
