Abstract: In May 2009 an expert conference for practice nurses took place at the University of Witten/Herdecke, organised by the task force of scientifically interested practice nurses of the German Society of General Practice and Family Medicine (DEGAM). Projects and training courses for practice nurses (MFA) were presented and discussed. These courses have been developed to allow general practitioners to delegate medical tasks to other qualified health professions. For the first time, developers and participants of the various models met in that scope to discuss similarities and differences of their concepts, their experiences, interests and conflicts.
