Research dissemination - CRE conference and meeting presentations


2015

The 2015 13th National Rural Health Conference was held in Darwin from 24-27 May 2015.  The Conference was well attended with approximately 1200 attendees.  The CRE in Rural and Remote Primary Health Care was well represented at the conference with a number of staff and students presenting at the conference. 

The Opening Address by Senator Fiona Nash, Assistant Federal Minister for Health, announced an overhauled and much fairer GP Rural Incentives Program which means smaller rural communities would be able to more easily attract and retain GPs. Some 450 rural and regional towns will receive greater incentives to attract GPs from 1 July 2015.  An independent expert panel consulted with stakeholders before compiling a report for the Minister, using the new Modified Monash Model to classify rural and regional towns and cities.  Minister Nash acknowledged the work of this expert panel and gave particular acknowledgement to Emeritus Professor John Humphreys for his work as a member of the expert panel and for the Modified Monash Model. 

Dr Carole Reeve, a PhD student of the CRE in Rural and Remote Primary Health Care, based at Alice Springs, presented a very interesting and thought provoking opening address on the Sunday evening entitled “The challenge of providing fair care”.

Professor John Wakerman presented a keynote address on the Monday afternoon entitled Research excellence, knowledge exchange and policy development”.  This presentation drew on the work of the CRE to examine the key features of an effective knowledge exchange process.  John discussed the CRE research impact framework and the Modified Monash Model and also acknowledged the work of John Humphreys and Matthew McGrail.
