A workshop to look at strategies, methods of implementation and evaluation of vocational training and Continuing Medical Education in General Practice was held in June 1990 in London. This text represents papers written by contributors to the workshop and pre-circulated papers which describe health systems and educational realities in six countries: Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden and the UK. The first part of the books compares the structure care systems and General Practice education in the UK and Nordic countries. The second part reviews teaching under five headings, each introduced by a brief commmentary highlighting the main issues and indicating the consensus view. Of particular note is the last chapter which presents demography and health service organization, arrangements for General Practice and primary health care, vocational (specialists) training of GPs, and continuing medical education for each of the six countries.
