Switzerland, November 2016 – Primary care practitioners in Hungary took part in an exchange with Swiss health professionals from 29 November to 1 December 2016. The goal of the project was to strengthen skills among Hungarian family doctors, nurses, nutritionists and physiotherapists. Some 15 local practitioners were introduced to the challenges facing the Swiss primary care system – the need to develop home care, the expanded role of nurses, and funding. The meeting also helped the Hungarian participants to develop a long-term vision of the model of care being introduced by the project beyond the current support provided by Switzerland.
