Call for Abstracts - Rural Health and Research Congress

Publish date:

HETI invites health professionals, researchers and others with an interest in rural health to submit an abstract for the 8th Rural Health and Research Congress to be held in Lismore, Northern NSW in October this year.

Abstracts must contain a predominantly rural focus and will be assessed for consideration as an oral concurrent session, poster presentation, interactive workshop or guided discussion group. 

The overarching theme for this year’s Congress is “Connecting Communities” addressing the health and wellbeing of our rural people and communities.

Please consider this overarching theme and align with one of the following six streams when developing your abstract:

  • Determinants of Health - Deeper Insights
  • The Rural Experience
  • Productive Partnerships
  • Our Rural Workforce - Now and Future
  • Creativity - Out of the Box
  • Futureproofing Rural Health

Research abstracts should describe how the results have translated, or could translate, into policy, practice or service delivery.
