6th Rural and Remote Scientific Symposium



This symposium will celebrate 20 years since the establishment of the first university department of rural health in 1997 and will highlight the research and knowledge that followed this innovation.

The theme of the symposium is Outback infront and will celebrate the leadership that has emerged from the rural and remote health research community, while at the same time, support early career academics and the next generation of rural health researchers.

The symposium will focus on rural and remote health research that informs strategic health policy and health service challenges in rural and remote Australia.

It will provide an opportunity for delegates to share and develop research that seeks to understand and deliver innovative change through building evidence that has the potential to transform health outcomes and service delivery.

The program will be designed to engage academics, policy makers, expert researchers in rural and remote health and clinician-researchers, as well as emerging and early career researchers.

It will also be relevant to university departments of rural health, rural clinical schools, research collaborations and bodies, rural workforce organisations, non-government policy advisers, and health services delivery networks and providers.
