The 17 priority recommendations from the 12th National Rural Health Conference held this week in Adelaide cover many of the most important issues facing the rural and remote health sector. Advocates for the people of rural and remote Australia, including the NRHA, will consider all of the proposals and promote their adoption - especially in the lead-up to the September Election.
The 17 recommendations fall into 4 thematic groups. The first 6 relate to physical and soft infrastructure for health and health-related services. The second 6 relate to specific clinical service areas, including child health and aged care. Topics covered include broadband, a national arts and health framework, maternity and early childhood care, telehealth and Indigenous health.
