SARRAH Calls for Abstracts for 2018 Conference ‘Changing Landscapes, Changing Lives’



SARRAH is calling for abstracts that relate to the 2018 SARRAH conference theme ‘Changing Landscapes, Changing Lives‘.

“The modern healthcare landscape is undergoing massive and rapid changes that impact on both health professionals and the people who use the health system. Changes are driven by people’s needs, technological development, research outcomes, workforce availability, political stances, policy frameworks and fiscal priorities” said SARRAH Chief Executive, Jeff House.

“At the same time, health services in rural and remote areas are situated in ancient geographical landscapes that are ever changing as a result of human influence and natural events. The delivery of services by allied health professionals is underpinned by the drive to improve quality of life and quality of services” Mr House said.

SARRAH invites abstracts that relate to this theme of change in contexts across workforce; training and professional development; needs of specific consumers or consumer groups; service delivery models; policy development, implementation and impact; clinical practices and service delivery; health economics and financing; community engagement; rural generalism; interprofessional practice, training and education; cross cultural service provision; aboriginal health; technology and digital health system. 

The call for abstracts closes on 23 April 2018.

The 2018 SARRAH national conference for rural and remote allied health professionals will be held from 13 – 15 September, 2018 at the Darwin Convention Centre, Darwin. Early bird registrations start now and close on 25 July, 2018.

SARRAH thanks the conference platinum sponsor Flinders University and gold sponsor Queensland Government.
