Retention of allied health professionals in rural new south Wales

Retention of allied health professionals in rural new south Wales: a thematic analysis of focus group discussions is an interesting article by Sheila Keane, Michelle Lincoln and Tony Smith, published in BMC Health Services Research (2012, 12:175 doi:10.1186/1472-6963-12-175).

Allied health professionals were attracted by advanced work roles in a context of generalist practice. Access to CPD and inequitable resource distribution were strong 'push' factors in this group. Health policy based on the assumption of transferability between professions may be misguided.
