Resources for family doctors
WONCA's new website has a large selection of resources for family doctors.
There is an A to Z listing of clinical resources. As this is still under development, family doctors around the world are invited to submit their favourite resource. Items chosen for inclusion will find their submitters acknowledged. This month, submissions have been received from the Catalan society of family medicine (cancer and palliative care category); as well as from various individuals, namely, Jim Vause (dermatology category), Alan Abelsohn and Grant Blashki (environment category), and Allyn Walsh (medical education category).
As well is clinical resources, the are other resources of specific interest to family doctors.

There is a list of free-of-charge downloadable applications for PDAs and smartphones
. This list is however only just being compiled and WONCA would be grateful if those IT savvy colleagues around the world would send us their favourite application link.
Why not take a look at this new section of the WONCA website? You might find something that will help in your practice. Or, submit something that will help your colleagues.
