Background

The Hong Kong Practitioner is published quarterly by The Hong Kong College of Family Physicians.

The Journal is indexed in EMBASE/Excerpta Medica as `HK Pract'. It has a circulation of 4000, distributed to all members and some non-members of the College, academic institutions as well as private subscribers in Hong Kong and overseas.

The aim of the journal is to promote the development of quality family medicine/general practice in Hong Kong and the region, by publishing editorials, original articles, update reviews, letters to the editor, news of future meetings, and self-assessment materials.

History

When Sister M. Aquinas wrote the very first academic article - entitled ‘Tuberculosis' - for The Hong Kong Practitioner back in April 1978, it had to be published in the form of stencilled sheets . "The Journal" has come a long way since then and it was subsequently developed into a booklet format in June 1979.

The clinical contents have evolved around the main themes of providing a platform for educational updates, a forum for discussion of policy as well as clinical issues, and a medium for sharing clinically important rarities. These take the shape of original articles, review and update articles, discussion papers, case reports, and clinical therapeutic guidelines, as well as clinical quizzes and conference information.

The Journal has provided fertile ground for the exchange of clinical expertise among clinicians in public, private, academic, hospital and community practice, and international authors frequently make submissions to the Journal to share expertise and ideas relevant to local clinical practice.
