The health care system and primary health care in particular, is confronted with a series of new challenges: the demographic transition with increase of chronic conditions and multi-morbidity; the widening social gradient in health; the multiculturality in the daily care; new technological and scientific developments. In order to address those, the GP of the 21st century requires a new type of organization, payment system, skills and attitudes. Drawing on research and experience in change management from Belgium for 40 years, examples will be given of how GPs tackle these challenges.
