Rural and Remote Health Scientific Symposium

Tuesday 20 June, 2023 @ 8:00 am - Wednesday 21 June, 2023 @ 5:00 pm

Connecting Research Practice & Communities

The 9th Rural and Remote Health Scientific Symposium, to be held on 20 and 21 June 2023 at Hotel Realm Canberra, has an exciting line-up for our delegates to learn, mentor, contribute and network.

The Hon Emma McBride MP, Assistant Minister for Rural & Regional Health and Mental Health & Suicide Prevention, will address the delegates on the first day, followed by Adjunct Professor Ruth Stewart, National Rural Health Commissioner.

Delegates will also hear from Dr Kim Houghton, Chief Economist at the Regional Australia Institute; Frank Quinlan, Federation Executive Director of the Royal Flying Doctor Service of Australia; and physician and cardiologist Dr Arnagretta Hunter.

The themes for concurrent sessions of Day 1 will range from paediatrics, aged care, chronic disease, workforce, cancer and avoiding hospital admission, through to disaster and climate impacts. Delegates will also have the opportunity to participate in workshops, enabling a deep dive into an area of interest.

Day 2 of the Symposium will kick off with a panel discussion on the importance of rural and remote health research and funding, followed by concurrent sessions on prevention, mental health, telehealth, training, co-design, workforce and research, along with the choice of a workshop on creating opportunities for innovation in rural aged care.

The program and speaker bios can be found on the Symposium website.

We invite you to register for the Symposium!
