Do you know someone who wants to study the rural health workforce?
Despite critical need, attracting medical and health workforce to underserved areas such as outer metropolitan Sydney and rural Australia remains an enduring challenge. This project will take in new directions the evidence base for education and workforce programs beyond the atheoretical and generally descriptive current research using Design Based Research, in outer metropolitan and rural settings in NSW and Victoria, leveraging new and existing partnerships with research universities. The research will ask: What does it mean to belong, identify with and imagine oneself living and working in underserved areas as a doctor and health professional? The field of medical education and training is inclusive and interdisciplinary by nature. Applicants from diverse disciplinary backgrounds are welcome.

Can you spare 8 minutes to help future Nursing, Midwifery, Dentistry, Pharmacy and other Allied Health students?
Did you graduate in or after 2005?

KBC Australia has been appointed by the Department of Health to evaluate the Commonwealth-funded Rural Health Multidisciplinary Training (RHMT) program. 
As part of this they are conducting an online survey targeting Nursing, Midwifery, Dentistry, Pharmacy and other Allied Health professionals across Australia. 
The survey has the support of the PHN Cooperative and I would appreciate your assistance in distributing it to your members and encouraging them to participate. In doing so, they will be contributing directly to increasing the evidence about the value of placements to health workforce training and graduates’ career pathways. Please note the evaluation has ethics approval through Bond University Human Research Ethics Committee. Take the survey here.

The Mental Health Professionals’ Network (MHPN) funded by the Department of Health aims to improve interdisciplinary and collaborative mental health care practices. Practitioners from a range of disciplines are invited to connect via face-to-face networks and free online webinars.
MHPN supports health practitioners to form networks where relationships are built, knowledge exchanged and professional development undertaken. Currently there are 360+ practitioner networks around Australia. Collaborate with other practitioners and join or start a network in your local area.
Register to attend the next free live webinar or choose from over 100 mental health webinar recordings available in the MHPN webinar library.
