Research can lead to discoveries for improving rural health, but where does research fit in the organisational priorities of a rural health organisation? This is the key question asked by the top ranked abstract submitted for the 14th National Rural Health Conference. David Schmidt, University of Sydney PhD candidate, will present his study aiming to understand whether and how an organisation’s strategic goal of research is translated into operational plans.
David’s presentation will be included in a concurrent session on research and evidence base; one of 45 concurrent session with more than 200 presentations. The concurrent session presentations were selected from 500 abstracts submitted for the Conference.
The business case for telehealth, remote communities, ageing and living well, emergency care, the best beginnings, programs that are going rural, upskilling for mental health, strengthening cultural safety across services – this is just a taste of the range of concurrent sessions on offer. Presenters will come from all corners of Australia, from across the health professions, universities, health services and organisations.
There is so much to discover at the 14th National Rural Health Conference.
