A bright future for rural health

Professor David Lyle of the Broken Hill University Department of Rural Health and Associate Professor Ann Larson of the Combined Universities Centre for Rural Health, Geraldton have co-edited "A bright future for rural health : evidence-based policy and practice in rural and remote health care," the latest publication by the Australian Rural Health Education Network.

The book presents a number of case studies of evidence-based innovative solutions for pressing problems in rural health. The case studies cover scenarios from clinical services, indigenous health, mental health, service delivery and workforce development.

Along with ARHEN's earlier publications "A textbook of Australian Rural Health" (2008) and "Opportunities as vast as the landscape - working in rural and remote health"(2006) this is an important contribution to the rural health literature.

Also available in hard copy from ARHEN.
