Introduction: the Spanish Association of Primary Care Pediatrics (SAPCP) had wanted to know the repercussions that some proposals that are being made from different institutions could have on the continuity of primary care pediatrics.
Analysis performed: the SAPCP and the professional working group have analyzed six proposals to see if they strengthen or weaken Primary Care Pediatrics. The proposals that have been analyzed are: 1) prolongation of the pediatric age in primary care; 2) prolongation of the duration of the specialty of Pediatrics and its Specific Areas; 3) adjustment of professional opportunities; 4) adaptation of the number of individual health cards; 5) increase in Internal medical residents of pediatrics, and 6) maintenance of differentiated oppositions of Pediatrics of Primary Care and facultative specialist of Area of Pediatrics.
Conclusions: the prolongation of the pediatric age in primary care from 14 to 18 years and the prolongation of the duration of the specialty of Pediatrics and its Specific Areas would be detrimental for the continuity of Primary Care Pediatrics.
