Call for papers on serial sections “China Focus” and “Comparative Narratives”

Dear readers of Family Medicine and Community Health and Chinese General Practice,

The English language journal Family Medicine and Community Health (FMCH) of the Chinese General Practice Press is now planning two brand new serial sections: “China Focus” and “Comparative Narratives”. We invite you to contribute quality submissions which fit the following descriptions.

China Focus

This new featured section was launched in our June issue. It specifically focuses on hot topics and major developments relating to family medicine and community health in China. It is envisioned that this section will also be of interest to readers from around the broader Asia-Pacific rim, and indeed the rest of the world, who are interested in gaining insights into what is happening in China. It aims to provide an active platform for the timely exchange of practical information concerning family medicine and community health through original research and inter-country comparative study articles that address related topics.

Comparative Narratives

This new serial section was launched in the January 2016 issue of FMCH and focuses on global health; highlighting patients’ experiences with chronic disease in China and the Asia-Pacific area. The goals of this section are to increase understanding of clinical practice differences, illustrate the human side of chronic disease, highlight cultural differences, and demonstrate the shared experiences of patients globally.

Submitted narrative cases will be required to cover a range of topics, such as when and how the problem was discovered, how it affects the patient’s quality of life, what patient education was provided, how the patient interacts with the health care system, medications used in treatment, non-drug life-style strategies, the role of family in chronic disease management, the patient’s outlook on future prognosis, and so on. Recommended length per case: 1200 words.
