Which positive factors determine attractiveness to General Practice and retention in Clinical Practice?
Le Floch, Bernard
All through Europe we are running out of General Practitioners (GPs). Capacity is going down very fast in France and Belgium. WONCA and the World Health Organisation emphasize the central role of general practice in the European Health care systems. Many studies were conducted about why GPs are leaving profession but not why most of them stay in. Research has paid great attention to negative factors explaining this tendency. Strategies to improve capacity were not successful until now. Looking at what makes GPs satisfied in their profession may be important in increasing the General Practice workforce in the future. The aim of this thesis is to get insight in the reasons why GPs stay in the profession to use them in strategies to motivate students to choose for general practice and to counter the negative image of general practice.
