Increasing the visibility of academic primary Care
How do we make academic primary care practice more visible to a wider audience?
With over 25,000 new scientific articles related to research and teaching appearing every week, Jeremy Horwood argues that the new challenge for academics is not just to get published, but to be visible.
In the latest of our Hot Topic articles, Jeremy considers the opportunities - and problems - posed by an emerging array of technologies. New tools for public engagement and dissemination require us to to think differently about our role as academics. Not just at the forefront of knowledge production - but also dissemination and engagement?
SAPC is currently engaged in a strategic review of how best to support our discipline and our members in this work. How we can make the best use of the opportunities offered by the media and technology to increase the profile and impact of our work. We welcome your comments and suggestions - you can email them directly to Jeremy. We also welcome expressions of interest from people who may want to join us in developing and delivering this work.
