It is a rural health conference, but one that recognises the critical role played by education, rural industries, communications, transport and a wide range of other sectors and professions. The conference will have plenty for rural delegates and those working in rural education, regional development, housing, local government, community services, transport and infrastructure – as well as for health professionals from all disciplines.
One of the highlights of the National Rural Health Conference is the production of emerging themes from delegates to improve the health and wellbeing of people in rural and remote Australia. This process is managed via the Sharing Shed.
The Sharing Shed is an online portal through which conference delegates can propose emerging themes for the consideration of others at the event. All delegates have an equal right to go online and propose emerging themes of their own, and to see and comment on those already submitted by others.
The process will be moderated by the NRHA Policy Department who will scrutinise content submitted by delegates, as well as those that come out of the concurrent sessions. A set of collated and refined priority themes will be available online at various stages of the event.
The National Rural Health Conference has a well-earned reputation as one of the best health conferences in the Country.
