It includes all aspects of prevention, diagnosis, management and rehabilitation, extending to the somatic, psych affective and social sphere, as well as health promotion and advocacy.
The aim of this council is to increase the quality of paediatric care provided at primary care level. It is important that all care shall be as evidence-based as possible and that a high quality of care should be reached all over Europe. To achieve this, training programs and ongoing medical education are corner stones.
