The University Rural Stream research plan is delivered through the rural training sites
The University Rural Stream research plan is delivered through the rural training sites on the Darling Downs, South Burnett and Granite Belt, by the academic staff and rural health students.
The aim of the plan is to maintain and progress an evidence base on the rural health agenda in these regions.
Objectives are to:
- Support research into rural health workforce development, training strategies, and service delivery models to meet community needs with a particular focus on improving Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people’s health;
- Support rural health students to undertake and participate in rural research; and
- To monitor, evaluate and research rural workforce outcomes from rural training activity in the RHMT program.
