The theme for the Doctor 2019 event is trust. Although not often thought of, trust is part of a doctor’s everyday work in many different ways. The doctor–patient relationship is built on trust, collegiality means trusting that colleagues will provide assistance and support if needed, as well as trusting that health data will be handled securely. Trust and everything that goes plays a big role in course content and is discussed from many different perspectives.
The content of Doctor 2019, the most comprehensive three-day training event in Finland, has been developed to meet the expectations and needs of doctors even better than before. An extensive range of quality programmes comprises both new and topical issues and long-time favourites. Courses featuring the health and social services reform will be included this year too. Whatever happens with the reform, the doctor’s work will continue, even though the ways to do it might change – not to mention organisational or structural changes.
Courses open to everyone will be offered every day, and the programme in the exhibition area will be extensive and varied. As in previous years, the ticket price will include lunch provided in the exhibition area.
A detailed programme will be launched closer to the actual event, but this advance programme provides an excellent taste of the offering at the Doctor 2019 event.
