This Symposium brought together leading academics, policy makers, data agencies and rural and remote health experts to deliberate and discuss rural and remote health issues confronting Australia.
Building on the success of the 2014 Symposium, this 5th Symposium enabled rural health experts to share insights and learn from innovative research and service developments that may transform how services are delivered in years to come. Lightning Talk presentations were presented to support early career academics and the next generation of rural health researchers. The winner of the most engaging Lightning Talk presentation was Colleen Cheek from the University of Tasmania. See Colleen’s presentation here.
The Symposium was convened by the National Rural Health Alliance in partnership with the Primary Health Care Research and Information Service (PHCRIS); the Australian Rural Health Education Network (ARHEN); and the Federation of Rural Australian Medical Educators (FRAME).
